At the Intelligent Control Systems (ICONS) Laboratory, we develop fundamental theory and advanced algorithms for, and useful applications of, intelligent and high-performance control systems. These systems are at the core of many complex and critical engineering systems, including in energy and infrastructure (e.g., smart buildings, smart grid, smart cities), manufacturing, transportation (e.g., advanced driver-assistance systems, self-driving cars, autonomous drones), agriculture (e.g., intelligent environment control), healthcare (e.g., drug delivery, assistive devices and therapeutics), and many other industries.
We are actively looking for motivated graduate and undergraduate students interested in the research areas of smart control systems, cyber-physical systems, autonomous systems, and machine learning (as applied in control systems).
Graduate students: we have funding for multiple graduate student positions (preferrably Ph.D. students / researchers). Interested students are encouraged to contact Prof. Nghiem directly for opportunities. Click here for more information.
Undergraduate students (currently at NAU): we have exciting research projects suitable for undergraduate students in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Interested students are encouraged to contact Prof. Nghiem directly, stating their interests and providing some information about their background. Senior students can also consider Capstone projects sponsored by Prof. Nghiem; projects are announced at the beginning of every Fall semester.
Postdocs and visiting scholars: we are also happy to coordinate with interested post-doctoral candidates and visiting scholars who wish to work with us, or who wish to submit grant proposals in collaboration with us. Interested scholars are encouraged to contact the PI directly.
