I am a faculty member in the Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Madras since 2006. I work in the area of control systems with specialization in nonlinear control. I work on several applications such as robotic control, biological models, power electronics etc. Prior to joining IITM, I did my Ph.D in systems and Control Engineering, IIT Bombay under the supervision of Prof. Ravi N Banavar. I obtained my masters in control systems from VJTI, Mumbai in 1997 under the supervision of Dr. N. M. Singh and the undergraduate in Electrical and Electronics from Karnatak University, Dharwad in 1994.
In recent years I have been working on formation control of multi-agent systems and event-trigerred control. Some of the robots built by my former student M. Vijay (Assistant Professor, IIT Palakkad) are still in use and they have formed the workhorse for validating our control strategies
I am looking for MS/Ph.D students who have an aptitude to take-up challenging mathematical control problems and complement theory with experimental work. Test/interviews for MS/Ph.D applicants are conducted twice in a year and the details can be obtained from the Electrical Engg. website.
