Projects per year
I am currently a Lecturer in Control Engineering in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Automotive Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing, Coventry University, UK.
I obtained my PhD degree in Electronics & Electrical Engineering from The University of Melbourne Australia, Melbourne, Australia in 2012, under the supervision of Prof. Erik Weyer, where I worked modelling and control design of river systems. Prior joining Coventry University, I was a Research Fellow in Warwick Integrative Synthetic Biology Centre (WISB), School of Engineering, University of Warwick UK, in the research group of Prof. Declan Bates. from 2015-2018. I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) in Pohang, South Korea from 2012-2015, in the research group of Dr. Pan-Jun Kim, where I worked on deciphering the core genetic architecture of plant circadian system.
My primary research interests are dynamical systems modelling and control of biological system. I have mostly studied on plant gene regulatory network and my research mainly focuses on application of engineering design principles for synthetic biology application to improve crop productivity.
