I am a post-doctoral researcher in the School of Computer and Mathematical Sciences. My main areas of research focus are:

1) Optimal and Robust Linear Control Systems

By developing parameterisation methods for the pole placement problem, we develop algorithms to compute a state-feedback matrix that achieves the desired closed-loop performance constraints with minimal control effort and maximum robustness.

2) Two-player zero-sum pursuit-evasion Differential Games

We apply the theory of two-player zero-sum differential games to aerospace engagement scenarios commonly found in defence applications. Here the optimal control laws for both teams are derived by finding the Nash equilibrium.

3) Intelligent Target Tracking using game-theoretic approaches

We study the problem of sensor management for target tracking by modelling the interaction between a mobile radar and an evasive jammer as a two-player zero-sum game.
