I am working as a post-doctor researcher with the robotics, intelligent systems and control (RISC) lab at Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering Division (CEMSE). King Abdullah University of Science and Technology ( KAUST).

I obtained my Ph.D. in the field of systems and control in 2013  from the University of New South Wales at Australian Defence Force Academy, Canberra, Australia. I also hold a bachelor degree in applied mathematics and master degree in quantum physics. 

My research forces on understanding, modeling, andanalyzing large-scale dynamical systems to provide a rigorous framework for control system design and optimization tools for real world applications. Currently, my interests span to man-machine systems, as well as robotics and intelligent systems, where dynamical systems and control theoretic tools can be leveraged to develop new analysis tools. In the context of human-machine systems, the goal is to develop and understand the attributes and the limitation of the human operator, build a realistic application-based model for the human behavior, and Integrate the human models into a formal control synthesis methodology.
