Research Areas

Most of the research is concerned with obtaining tools which are useful in the analysis and control of systems containing significant uncertainty. These uncertainties are characterized deterministically, rather than stochastically. The systems treated can be linear or nonlinear and continuous-time or discrete-time. The major application of the research is in the analysis and control of aerospace and mechanical systems. In these applications, some of the research focuses on the effect of flexible elements.
