I am looking for highly qualified and highly motivated graduate students to study towards Ph.D., M.Sc., or M.Eng. degree in the general areas of control engineering, robotics, and information processing for mechanical systems.

Currently I am particularly interested in recruiting students with research interest/background in one or more of the following areas:

  • Networked and Distributed Control Systems
  • Model Predictive Control (MPC) and Distributed MPC
  • Mechatronics and Robotics
  • Control and Information Processing for Energy-Efficient Applications
  • Control and Navigation of Autonomous Vehicles (autonomous underwater vehicles, unmanned autonomous vehicles, etc.)
  • Modeling and Control of Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems

Interested students are encouraged to email me a detailed resume and a copy of their transcripts.

Unfortunately, due to the number of applicants, I am unable to respond to each individual. Students, who best fit the needs of my research projects, will be contacted.


Potential Financial Support

  • The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) has a competition in early October every year for Postgraduate and Canada Graduate Scholarships (PGS/CGS). NSERC PGS and CGS scholarship winners automatically receive a UVic President's Research Scholarship valued at $4,000.

  • NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) can provide partial funding for undergraduate students doing co-op projects in the ACIPL.

  • Wighton Engineering Product Development Fund administered by the UVic Engineering Faculty to support projects aimed at developing marketable products.

  • International students may be able to tap into scholarship funds from their own country, or scholarships available to international students from Canada.
