Mushfiqul is currently working with senior lecturer Dr. Mike Jump at Flight Science and Technology (FST) research group using modelling, flight simulation and Tau theory for flight control to develop a visual and haptic cueing environment to allow helicopter pilots to perform the emergency helicopter autorotation manoeuvre safely and reliably throughout the flight envelope. The research is conducted in close collaboration with School of Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA primarily funded by The US Army Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC).
Mushfiqul was awarded the degree of PhD following the successful defence of his dissertation thesis titled, “Adaptive Data Processing in Aircraft Control”, in January 2018. Following his PhD research, he was conferred with “departmental recognition” by the Department of Measurement for outstanding research achievements. Mushfiqul received several scholarships and fellowships during his PhD work e.g. CTU PhD Fellowship and DAAD Fellowship. During his PhD research, Mushfiqul worked on several national and European projects including Norway Grant-CZ07-0230 and ACFA2020 with close industrial collaborations. In 2013, Mushfiqul completed with academic distinction prestigious Erasmus Mundus double master’s degree in “Joint European Master in Space Science and Technology” known as SpaceMaster with a specialization in Systems and Controls at the Lulea University of Technology, Sweden and Czech Technical University, Czech Republic. His master’s studies were fully funded through the Erasmus Mundus Fellowship awarded by EACEA, EU Commission. In 2011, he successfully completed a BEng in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Liverpool with a 1st class honours degree. Earlier Mushfiqul completed secondary and high school education in Dhaka, Bangladesh through GCSE and GCE examinations under Edexcel International, United Kingdom from 2006-2008.
Mushfiqul’s research areas focus on: nature inspired flight control systems, inertial sensors and data fusion, nonlinear system dynamics and controls, active control of flexible aircraft and rotorcraft.
