Research Themes

Systems control theory and its application to aerospace systems

Today, automatic control has become a necessity in a variety of situations from manufacturing sites to individual products. Along with elucidating the dynamic nature of controlled objects in system control theory, I am studying the methods for using this and handling it appropriately. In the Satoh laboratory we are studying control of hybrid systems, and control using numerical optimization techniques such as the LMI approach as well as working on research into aerospace systems of unmanned aircraft (UAV, drones), etc., related to external organizations such as JAXA.

Teaching Philosophy

I want to foster students who study the ideas and mathematical methods underlying system control theory and have the skills and ability to apply them in a variety of fields. Furthermore, I consider it important to have an open mind which is receptive to diverse values and I want to create a synergistic space where students can freely exchange ideas.
