The activity at Michigan in control systems is very interdisciplinary and moves easily across traditional departmental boundaries.

While I still have strong interest in this subject and feel a sense of community with that body of researchers, my research activities have significantly broadened over time.

From 1986 to 2010, I worked on various apsects of modeling and control of automotive powertrain systems and control of HEVs.

From 1991-2001, I applied systems and control techniques to improve the operation of plasma-based microelectronics manufacturing equipment.
