Dynamics and control of complex systems

I am a DAAD Postdoctoral Researchers International Mobility Experience (PRIME) fellow at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University of Washington and at the Institute of Fluid Mechanics at Technische Universität Braunschweig,  where I work under the supervision of Profs. Steven L. Brunton and Richard SemaanMy research lies at the exciting and fertile intersection between data-science methods, dynamics and control theory, and fluid mechanics applications.


  • My Communications Physics paper, "Modeling synchronization in forced turbulent oscillator flows", is now onlineOct 30, 2020

  • New preprint available online, where I show how to do resolvent analysis from data!  Oct 5, 2020

  • Gave a talk at the Second Symposium on Machine Learning and Dynamical Systems of the Fields Institute. Sep 21, 2020

  • My new video abstract is available on Youtube! Sep 18, 2020​​

  • Presented my work on the synchronization dynamics of wake flows to the McKeon research group at Caltech. Mar 25, 2020
