Personal profile

Research interests

My main research interest is on digital manufacturing to integrate kinematics, process and control models in one virtual model. The goal of Industry 4.0 is to achieve the process control and optimization using the sensors or data available in the plant. In my research, the simulated behavior of each of the digitized (virtual) machine/process model will be linked to the large amounts of real proces data that is already available.
