Building System Autonomy

I work to reduce the effect of uncertainty in both components and environments of engineering systems. We have achieved this through more measurements, direct measurements that reduce the length of chains of inference, and estimation and control algorithms that exploit signals and constraints of opportunity.  I teach advanced courses at Purdue which bring in vast industrial experience, including current work in my company.

Recent results include a terrestrial sun sensor that has progressed through two prototypes, and yields orientation and geolocation with an accuracy dependent upon its sensing components, and indoor geolocation for cell phone users to an accuracy of 20cm using magnetic mapping. 

My prior work includes deriving the conditions under which the smart grid integrating renewables can be expected to remain stable and a framework for quantifying and improving facility security dynamically.
