 I'm a lecturer in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Monash University
My research interests include model predictive control (MPC) theory and application, autonomous miniature

flyers, semi-infinite optimization problems, real-time system design and software/hardware implementation,
autonmous unmanned systems (UAVs, UGVs, and UUVs), rotorcraft dynamics, and robotics.  I've worked in BErkeley AeRobot (BEAR) project from 2000 to 2009.
