New book and MATLAB Toolboxes: True Digital Control: Statistical Modelling and Non–Minimal State Space Design
Control system design, system identification and optimisation,
with a focus on True Digital Control using linear
and nonlinear non–minimal state space models.
Statistical modelling and control in the natural sciences and engineering, with applied research spanning robotics, transport, energy, agriculture, health and the environment.
Developer of Matlab Toolboxes for time series analysis, forecasting and control, including the CAPTAIN Toolbox for data–based mechanistic analysis of nonstationary and nonlinear systems.
