Research area: G
ame Theory and Reinforcement Learning applications. 

I am developing a 3D simulation framework to obtain the outcomes of scenarios consisting of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), manned vehicles, automation and their interactions. In the simulator, I use a combination of reinforcement learning and game theory to model the behavior of human pilot in time extended scenarios.

Research area: Adaptive control allocation.

My research is mainly focused on the design of adaptive control
allocation in over-actuated systems with actuator rate and position
constraints. Our proposed adaptive control allocation can handle
actuator loss of effectiveness without using fault identification.

Research area:
Human-Adaptive Controller Interaction

My research is focused on human-in-the-loop telerobotics systems. Telerobotics system has feedforward and feedback telecommunication time delays, inevitability. In addition to that, I consider the human operator as an element of the overall closed loop system dynamics; my goal is to show mathematically how the human operator and the rest of the telerobotics system interact with each other, and how the human reaction time delay and telecommunication time delays affect the stability and performance of the closed loop system.

           I am working on ground test facility for rocket testing to simulate the 
           flight conditions on earth as the rocket experiences during the actual flight.
           For that ,connected pipe test set up will be used to create the same                        temperature and pressure at the inlet of combustion chamber as for                rocket combustion chamber. My task is to model the system and                                                             implement adaptive control to create and control the similar environment                                                 at the inlet of combustion chamber making the rocket testing possible on                                                 earth.
