Summary of Activities/Interests
Research Interests: Dr. Gupta's current research interests are in the analysis and design of cyberphysical systems. Such systems are the next generation of engineering systems and involve tightly coupled control, communication, and processing algorithms. Applications include structural health monitoring, medical devices, smart power grids and so on.A systematic design theory for such systems will include a joint design for problems usually studied as separate disciplines, including control, networking, processor scheduling etc. Funded research initiatives include control algorithms for time-varying and uncertain processor availability, network protocol design for distributed control, and estimation oriented approaches for network information theory.
Courses: Topics in Networked Control, Random Vectors, Det & Est
Ph.D., California Institute of Technology
Vijay Gupta received his B. Tech degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the California Institute of Technology, all in Electrical Engineering. He has served as a research associate at the Institute for Systems Research at the University of Maryland, College Park and as a consultant to the United Technologies Research Center. Since 2008, he has been an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. His research and teaching interests lie in the general area of intersection of control, communication and processing. Specific problems include fundamental performance limits for control across communication networks, network protocol design for estimation and control, control with time-varying processing resources, and design of scalable network communication protocols. He won the NSF CAREER award in 2009.
