Current Research

Change Detection in Climate:

The trend analysis is useful to better understand the climate change and variability and analyze low frequency variability of climate. Due to non-stationarity, a time-varying model is needed to represent the multi-dimensional climatic time series. Thus, locating the times of significant changes in the time series is important. Also, it is necessary to find connections between results of such a data-based analysis and physical phenomena generate these changes.

Hybrid Systems:

Hybrid systems are mixtures of real-time (continuous) dynamics and discrete events. Continuous dynamics may be represented by a continuous-time control system, such as a linear system. Hybrid systems are important in many real-world problems such as mechanical, biological, data networks. They can be used for modeling the real phenomena that exhibit discontinuous behavior. Moreover, hybrid models can be used to approximate continuous phenomena. For instance, a nonlinear dynamical system can be approximated by switching among various linear model. Our current research focused on the identification of hyybrid systems using input/output pairs of data. Also, how a nonlinear system can be modeled by hybrid systems with nonlinear boundries.
