Thesis Title: Reliable Vehicle State and Parameter Estimation.

Research Interests:

My research concerns the analysis and design of resilient and reliable control systems, with particular emphasis on network control systems. Applications of network control systems are ubiquitous; however, I am specifically working on automotive and intelligent transportation systems.
