Research Statement
Main research interests are PID controllers, autotuning, process monitoring and modeling, process automation hardware and software for industrial processes (crystal glower, polymer extruder, desalination, Solid-Oxide-Fuel-Cell system, thermal cycler for DNA amplification etc.). I has spent over 20 years researching these topics, and has published about 65 related papers in SCI journals. Also, I wrote a textbook titled " Process Identification and PID Control John Wiley & Sons, (2009). Currently, I am especially focusing on developing commercial softwares for autotuning, process monitoring and advanced process control. Some of them are successfully commercialized through TBB company. Advanced Process Control
