Research interests

  • Nonlinear and Adaptive Control
  • Fuzzy Identification and Control
  • Positive/Negative Fuzzy Systems*

  • Pneumatic Muscle Actuators**

*A positive-negative (P/N) fuzzy system is a fuzzy system whose consequent prescribes an action to be avoided.  This is in contrast to a conventional fuzzy system, whose consequent prescribes an action to be taken.  P/N fuzzy systems have applications in obstacle avoidance, among other areas.

** A pneumatic muscle actuator (PM) is an elastic tube that, when inflated, contracts in length, similar to human muscle.  I have been primarily interested in PMs as actuators in robotic systems to aid the disabled.
