Research Statement

Program focused on control of complex systems, including multirate and asynchronous systems, nonlinear systems along trajectories, distributed systems, and application of simulation and optimal control to mechanical, electrical and biomedical systems.

Professor Dullerud is interested in controls and dynamics, especially networked, distributed and multirate hybrid control. He is currently a principal investigator in a large, interdisciplinary research effort sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research on cooperative networked control of small uninhabited aerial vehicles (UAVs). The main goal of the project is to develop a rigorous theoretical foundation, along with scalable analytical tools and paradigms, to construct networked systems and to verify their performance. This work will significantly impact the knowledge and design of large-scale robust real-time distributed systems.

He is also working with a large team led by Stanford University to develop data networks and controls and dynamical systems that allow robots to work in parallel.
