Personal Profile

I received my MASc. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in controls and mechatronics from Concordia University, Montreal, in 2005 and 2010, respectively. My primary research interests fall within the following disciplines: design and control nano-positioning stages for sensitive and fast mechatronic applications, control of cyber-physical mechatronic systems, and design of control systems for smart materials-based actuators. Between 2010 and 2013, I held research and teaching positions at University of Bologna, the University of Jordan, Concordia University, and the Institute of Mathematics at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

In 2013, I joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor as a post-doctoral fellow. At the University of Michigan, my research work focused on adaptive control for nonlinear mechatronic systems. These systems include shape-memory-alloy actuators, piezoceramic actuators, and magnetostrictive actuators. Recently, I have extended these results for friction nonlinearities in actuators. In 2015, I joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto as a post-doctoral fellow. At University of Toronto, my primary research work aimed to grapple with adaptive control for mitigating attacks on cyber-physical mechatronic systems. Specifically, mitigating attacks with nonlinear dynamics on actuators in cyber-physical mechatronic systems. At the University of Toronto, I also conducted a research to explore the design low-noise read-out circuit for sensitive MEMS accelerometers.

Recently, before joining Memorial University of Newfoundland, I worked as a senior Mechatronics Engineer at ASML (Advanced Semi-Conductor Manufacturing for Lithography) in the United States.

In total, I have more than 60 publications in the research area of mechatronics and controls. Furthermore, I served as the guest editor in chief for IEEE/ASME Transaction on Mechatronics for the special issue of “Hysteresis in Smart Mechatronic Systems: Modeling, Identification, and Control”.

Research Highlights

The global research in the areas of micro-robotics, high-precision control, and modern mechatronic systems is expanding. Recently, high precision positioning techniques have become widely used in several applications related to semiconductors, biomedical science, optics, haptics, and microscopy. For example, theoretical work in molecular manufacturing has highlighted the need for very small (a fraction of a nanometer) and very accurate manipulators, which simultaneously have a wide range of motion, thus permitting the flexible assembly of molecular components. This, in turn, requires a dramatic improvement in two interrelated robotic components, namely, actuators and controllers. Based on this notion, my research interests grabble with the following: smart micro/nano-positioning actuators for high precision motion applications; nonlinearities in smart material-based actuators: identification, modeling, and compensation; adaptive control for cyber-physical mechatronic systems.
