My research goal is to develop tools for the analysis and control of nonlinear ordinary equations and also some kinds of partial differential equations. I am interested in applications in communications networks with nonlinear and decentralized dynamics, sparse interconnection and delayed feedback. I am currently working on the use of semidefinite programming for stability analysis of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. I have developed some matlab toolboxes which can be used for analysis of differential equations with delays. For a detailed description of my research, please refer to my cv or extended research statement.
