My research interest focuses mainly on the analysis and control of linear time invariant and parameter-varying systems. As a member of the Theory of Dynamical Systems research group I am working on the development of robust and constrained control methods, as well as on fault detection and accommodation algorithms. These methods are developed mainly for aerospace applications.
