My research focuses on the modeling, simulation, and control of dynamical systems applied to energy generation machines. This encompasses renewable and non-renewable sources of energy. However, my research emphasizes energy generation using floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs). The aim of my current research involves maximizing energy capture while attenuating systems vibrations due to pitching and rolling moments in open-water conditions.

I hope that my Ph.D. research and dissertation may help reduce the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) for building, deploying, and operating a wind turbine farm, increasing the adoption rate of renewable energy sources to help combat the inevitable climate change crisis.

My Ph.D. research is supervised by Dr. Tuhin Das and Postdoctoral researcher Dr. Tri Ngo
