Spacecraft dynamics, control and navigation; Formation flying; Active vibration control; Membrane structures; Smart materials and structures; Multi-agent systems; Motion synchronization; Trajectory design and optimization.
I conduct research in spacecraft dynamics, control and navigation. I am particularly interested in cooperative and coordinated control of multiple vehicles, i.e., formation flying. Consequently, I must delve into such areas as active vibration control, smart materials and structures, membrane structures, and motion synchronization. For this purpose, I founded and direct the Spacecraft Dynamics Control and Navigation Laboratory at York University.
