Research

My research interests lie in applied dynamical systems, analysis and mathematical systems & control, particularly with a view to the modelling, analysis and control of biological and ecological systems. These interests lie on a spectrum from more theoretical to applications driven. Theoretical interests include model reduction for control systems as well as exploring properties in (not necessarily controlled) dynamical systems imparted by typically physically motivated constraints such as dissipativity and/or positivity of state variables. The latter, more applied, interests are motivated by important contemporary societal challenges arising in biology and ecology, where I believe that systems & control theory is ideally suited to offer solutions. I, with others, have been developing new results in robust and adaptive control, currently with a view to possible pest management and food security.
A list of publications, as well as preprints, may be found here.

Control seminars in Semester 1 2017/18

Take place on Thursdays 15:15pm in the Wolfson room, 4W1.7. A programme may be found here.

Teaching

I am teaching MA20220: Ordinary differential equations and control in Semester 1, 2017/18. All course material may be found on the Moodle course page.

PhD studentship

I have a funded PhD position for UK/EU student to recruit into the academic year beginning in September 2018. I am advertising a project called Simple adaptive and nonlinear control for positive systems. The advert, with details as to how to apply, may be found here. Do get in touch if you would like to know more. The deadline for applying is Sunday 28 January 2018.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences also has funded PhD positions for UK/EU students in our EPSRC funded CDT in Statistical Applied Mathematics, SamBa, see the advert or website. Applications from students with interests in control theory are welcome here as well. We encourage applying before the end of February 2018. Again, please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
