Research Interests:

My research perspective is very multi-discipline based, including expertise across computing and applied mathematics, quantum systems, Mechatronics engineering, multiagent systems, formation control, synchronization of complex dynamical systems, bioinformatics data analysis, time series, signal processing, Robotics, adaptive critics and dynamic programming, statistical pattern processing, and machine learning.

I also work with industrially related problems to analyse data that is generated in real context by various IoT devices and solve real world problems that changes dynamically over time. This included projects in the areas of biomedical signal processing, anomaly detection (ex. leak detection, and ground penetrating radar pipeline detection), operational research and smart scheduling systems, decentralised control of power systems, and quantum system control.
