Research Interest

Research interests: developing learning- and model-based techniques for control and estimation problems in cyber-physical systems using theoretical- and numerical simulation- based methods. Applications include inertial navigation, flight control of quadcopter and aircrafts, combustion control in hypersonic vehicles, control of unsteady flow, parameter estimation in dynamical systems, image reconstruction etc.
