Vision… Our research should be meaningful to sponsors, change the state-of-the-art and propel our students into careers that shape future technology.

We are focused on theoretical and applied mechatronic system research. Applications span sea, land, and air with content ranging from stability of nonlinear systems to deployment of large-scale control systems. Microgrid energy management and diesel engine emission reduction are of particular interest.

The purpose of our research is to advance mechatronics knowledge through the solution of problems while training future engineering researchers for careers in the public or private sector.

Our researchers are primarily Ph.D., and M.S. students, along with limited-term post-docs, visiting scholars and undergraduates. Mentoring students into challenging, leadership-focused careers is an important part of our mission.
