My research interests lie in the broad area of Linear and Nonlinear Structural Dynamics and Control. Aeroelasticity (and the control of aeroelastic systems), in particular, has been my most recent area of research. In this area, I study the dynamic behaviour of aeroelastic systems, and research linear and nonlinear control methods (e.g. Feedback linearisation, Pole-placement). I am also interested in the study of the dynamics of non-smooth nonlinear systems (structural and aeroelastic) and their control.
