My research group focuses on Cyber Physical Networked Embedded Systems and addresses problems in the interdisciplinary research area of Control, Computing and Communication Networks, and on Hybrid and Discrete Event Dynamical Systems. It addresses problems of control and automation and examines ways to design engineering systems that will exhibit high degree of autonomy in performing useful tasks. Application areas include transportation, manufacturing, and chemical process systems, as well as computer and communication networks. My work includes analysis of behavior based on mathematical models and design of control strategies for complex autonomous, intelligent, learning and reconfigurable systems.
