Dynamic Systems, Measurement and Control.

Description of Research
Dr. Franchek´s research interests specifically focus on the engineering sciences of linear and nonlinear system identification, information synthesis, multivariable control theory, nonlinear control theory, controller design, diagnostics/prognostics, and targeted adaptive control. Potential applications for his research include the engineering areas of internal combustion engines, exhaust after-treatment components, noise/vibration control of structures, and health prognostics of cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
