My research interests cover areas of basic systems theory,
linear and nonlinear dynamics, distributed parameter systems, system
identification and model order reduction, and robust and optimal control. A
central theme in my current research is the development of new methodologies
for model order reduction, control and observer design for unsteady fluid
dynamics. Other current projects include the utilization of dynamic models in
bio-medical imaging, real time video analysis, and in information extraction from massive data streams.
Previous work covered control and estimation problems arising in the control
of electric motor drives, power electronics and power systems.
