Biography

Dr. Franchek received his first academic appointment in 1992 as an Assistant Professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. In 1997, he became an Associate Professor and the Deputy Director of the Electro-hydraulic Control Research Center there. Dr. Franchek became a full professor at Purdue in 2001. He joined the University of Houston as a full Professor and chair of the new Department of Biomedical Engineering there in 2002.

Description of Research

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.
