My group is focused on all aspects of miniaturized-system control, from initial determination of the dominant physics, to model development, control problem statement and algorithm design, to experimental verification.

Some sample projects are shown. To learn more click on any project. Mousing-over the images will reveal the title of the projects. More projects can be found here.
