Research Summary:

As the trend towards electrification continues, improving thermal management control has become an important consideration in designing reliable systems. My current research is to understand and build models of electrical-thermal systems so that we can simulate how they would respond to a controller. This will benefit our research process as it allows us to run simulations and quickly determine how our systems interact when they’re coupled and in which controllers would be suitable, before actually running time-consuming experimental tests.

Research Interests:

  • Dynamic Modeling and Control
