I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate at Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) and Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS) at MIT, working with Munther Dahleh. I received my master’s and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from NTU of Singapore (2013) and MIT (2018), respectively.
My research is broadly in the field of dynamical systems and controls with a current focus on data-assisted modeling and control for smart systems and structures. My research has far-reaching applications in energy sector, robotics, automotive industry, and construction and structural engineering.
My prior research focused mainly on model-based dynamics and controls. In particular, in my Ph.D. I worked on derivation and analysis of fundamental power limits in nonlinear vibration energy harvesters and techniques to approach these limits. At LIDS and IDSS, I work on leveraging data for modeling and control of complex systems, from energy and comfort control in smart homes to control of infectious diseases, such as, COVID-19 in indoor environments.
