Professor Bamieh's research is centered around notions of uncertainty and robustness in
control and dynamical systems, and the study of distributed systems and their control.
Aside from basic research on the theory of Robust and Optimal Control, his group carries
out several research activities including Atomic Force Microscopy, design and control of
multi-micro cantilevers, optical actuation via optical tweezers, quantum control, and
analysis of turbulent shear flows. He joined the College of Engineering faculty in 1998,
prior to which he was with the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Bamieh is a member of IEEE, ASME,
SIAM and the APS. He is a past receipient of the AACC Hugo Schuck best paper award and a
National Science Foundation CAREER award.
