Control system design, system identification and optimisation,
with a focus on True Digital Control using linear
and nonlinear non–minimal state space models.
Modelling and control in the natural sciences and engineering, with applied research into mobile nuclear decommissioning robots, hydraulic actuators, micro–climate control in buildings, wave energy converters, intelligent transportation and public health.
Developer of Matlab Toolboxes for time series analysis, forecasting and control, including the CAPTAIN Toolbox for data–based mechanistic analysis of nonstationary and nonlinear systems.
