Personal Statement

Engineering is essential to eliminating poverty and preventing the degradation of our environment. It's good to think as engineers we can make a contribution to these matters!

My guiding approach in control engineering research is to use both experimental methods and direct experimental data in the form of nonparametric methods whenever possible.
