As she began working on her degree in engineering, she never planned on joining the family tradition in education until she served as a teaching assistant during her PhD program at Rutgers University.
Current study results on Control Engineering have been published. News originating from Ames, Iowa, by VerticalNews correspondents, says the research paper, “presents a methodology, motivated by aerospace applications, to use second-order cone programming to solve nonconvex optimal control problems. The nonconvexity arises from the presence of concave state inequality constraints and nonlinear terminal equality constraints.” The paper concluded, “Applications in …Continue reading “Study results from Iowa State University broaden understanding of Control Engineering”
