Dragan Nesic's Research

My research is in the area of mathematical control theory and its applications to different engineering problems, such as mechanical systems. Underlying most of my work is the Lyapunov stability theory and its different extensions to systems with disturbances within the framework of input-to-state stability (ISS). Also, I have done extensive work on the averaging and singular perturbations methods for nonlinear systems with disturbances. My PhD Thesis was on analysis of controllability of discrete-time polynomial (nonlinear) systems. Recently, I have developed a novel framework for controller design for nonlinear sampled-data systems via their approximate discrete-time models. I have applied these tools to a range of engineered systems including multi-robot systems, internal combustion engines, atomic force microscopes, Lithium-Ion batteries and Raman optical amplifiers.
