Michael Malisoff awarded two collaborative research grants from the NSF Directorate for Engineering

Roy Paul Daniels Professor Michael Malisoff will serve as Lead Principal Investigator for two collaborative projects from the US National Science Foundation Directorate for Engineering. The first project "Robustness of Networked Model Predictive Control Satisfying Critical Timing Constraints," focuses on resolving contentions in a class of communication networks that are common in automobiles and other real-time control applications, and is joint with the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The second project is "Designs and Theory of State-Constrained Nonlinear Feedback Controls for Delay and Partial Differential Equation Systems" and covers control designs for classes of ordinary and hyperbolic partial differential equations that arise in oil production and rehabilitation engineering, and is joint with the UC San Diego Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
