Personal profile

Biography

I am currently senior lecturer in aerospace engineering at Coventry University. I have joined the university in November 2012. I was awarded a PhD in the control of spacecraft from Surrey Space Centre, University of Surrey, 2004. I then worked for 5 years as a research fellow on spacecraft control related projects. I also taught guidance, navigation and control as well as the dynamics and control of spacecraft during that time.

My teaching at Coventry University has included UAV systems, aerospace control, flight dynamics, avionics and instrumentation as well as aerospace technology. I am currently course director of the MSc in aerospace engineering at Coventry University. I also teach Coventry MSc courses to external partners such as Emirates Aviation University.

 

Research Interests

My research interests include:

- Autonomous coordinated control of a UAV formation using LQR/MPC type approaches.

- Sensor fusion using EKF/particle filter type estimation methods.

- Satellite attitude control in the presence of actuator constraints and failures

- System identification including inverse optimisation for pilot in the loop modelling.

- Control of aircraft in the presence of flexible modes, including gain scheduling.

- Optimal aircraft path planning

- New UAV concepts such as ducted fan UAVs and their control allocation/dynamics

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
