Welcome to the World of Dynamics and Controls!

Are you fascinated by the intricacies of how systems move, evolve, and respond to various inputs? Do you find joy in understanding the principles behind controlling these systems to achieve desired outcomes? If so, you've arrived at the perfect destination.

Our lab is dedicated to exploring the dynamic interplay between systems and the controls that shape their behavior. From the graceful motion of a robotic arm to the precise regulation of a chemical process, we delve into the fascinating world of dynamics and controls.

What is Dynamics and Controls?

Dynamics is the study of how objects and systems move and change over time, influenced by forces, motion, and energy. Controls, on the other hand, involve the design and implementation of strategies to regulate and manipulate the behavior of dynamic systems. Together, dynamics and controls form the backbone of countless engineering and scientific endeavors, driving innovation across a wide range of fields.

Dynamics and Controls Lab focuses on the following areas:

1. Investigating the dynamics influenced by noise (stochastic perturbation) across various systems, both mechanical and non-mechanical. The aim is to harness real-life noise constructively.
2. Designing a neural machine with the capability to predict long-term transient chaos in nonlinear systems, facilitating early detection and control of undesired dynamical states.
3. Exploring the nonlinear phenomena inherent in origami structures and pioneering metastructures suitable for diverse engineering applications.
