I work in the area of nonlinear feedback control systems. I am particularly interested in motion control problems and their application to electro-mechanical systems. A list of selected publications is available on this site.

My other interests include methods for stabilizing sets in the state space of a system, synchronization problems, output feedback control and CAD for nonlinear controllers.


In Fall 2019 I'm teaching SE 380: Introduction to Feedback Control. Here is the complete list of courses I have taught.
