    Expertise

    • Navigation, guidance and control of dynamic systems

    Education

    • M.S. (Diplome d'Ingenieur) Mechatronics, National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) in Strasbourg, France, 2002
    • M.S. Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Illinois Institute of Technology, 2002
    • Ph.D. Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Illinois Institute of Technology, 2009

    Research

    Real-time precision navigation, guidance (trajectory planning and obstacle avoidance) and control of autonomous ground vehicles

    Multi-constellation satellite navigation systems (using carrier phase signals from GPS, Galileo and from low-earth-orbiting satellites)

    Multi-sensor navigation (measurement-level integration of carrier phase differential GPS with laser-based SLAM)

    Integrity monitoring, remote and embedded monitor designs, sequential fault detection algorithms

    Measurement error modeling (due to non-nominal ionosphere and troposphere)

    Current Projects

    • Joint Precision Approach and Landing System (JPALS) (sponsored by L3 Communications): aims at providing carrier phase differential GPS-based navigation for shipboard landing of military aircraft
    • In charge of the iGPS research effort at IIT (supported by the Boeing Company and the Naval Research Laboratory) investigating a high-integrity navigation system for civilian precision applications (using ranging signals from GPS and from Iridium telecommunication satellites) (until January 2011)

    Awards/Honors

    • 2009 Bradford Parkinson Award, Institute of Navigation
    • 2010 Best-of-Session Paper Award, Institute of Navigation
