Professional Summary

1) Production Systems Engineering: The goal of this research is to develop first-principle-based methods for modeling, analysis, continuous improvement, lean design, real-time control, and energy-efficient operations of manufacturing and service systems. Applications of the research has been carried out in numerous companies such as General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Generac, MillerCoors, Kraft Foods, Kroger, Lexmark, Subzero, Cree Lighting, and HellermannTyton.

2) System-theoretic Analysis of Battery systems: The goal of this research is to develop system-level mathematical and computer models for battery systems that can be used for performance prediction, active control, and optimal parameter selection without experimenting with physical systems.
