Introduction: Optimization of Dynamic Systems


Welcome to the Applied Dynamics and Optimization Laboratory website. Our lab's fundamental disciplinary areas include multibody system dynamics, optimization theory and algorithms, and design and control of engineering and biological systems. Applications include robots and machines, biomechanical systems, and their intersections such as wearable robots. Current research interests include machine energetics, legged balance and gait stability, and contact optimization. The studies of modeling, design, and control of engineering systems can be extended to better understand more complicated biological systems and to validate nature's inherent hypotheses. On the other hand, the principles underlying and determining motions and structures of biological systems will provide innovative solutions and inspirations for novel engineering systems toward better functionality, stability, and efficiency. Our research aims at bringing together both robotic and biomechanical systems to establish novel solution approaches.
