Summary

 

Summary

I am a lecturer in the Department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London. My research interests range from machine learning and data science for modeling and control of complex systems to flexible composite structures, intelligent flight, and renewable energy systemsPrior to joining Imperial, I was a postdoc at the University of Washington, mentored by Steve Brunton, and closely collaborating with Bing Brunton and Nathan Kutz. I received my Doctor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at ETH Zurich, mentored by Paolo Ermanni, developing design optimization and control methods for morphing wings applied to Airborne Wind Energy. 


Detailed descriptions of my research topics can be found here. Two video abstracts of my latest work on data-driven aeroelastic modeling and robust model discovery are shown below, and a full list of my publications can be found on my Google Scholar.
