Principle Investigator

Professor Mezic works on operator-theoretic methods in nonlinear dynamical systems and control theory and their applications in fluid dynamics, energy efficient design and operations and complex systems dynamics.  

Graduate Student Researcher

Michael received his B.S. and M.S. in aerospace engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He currently works on the application of Koopman Mode Decomposition to optimal control and soft robotics.
Allan joined us in spring of 2016. He works on analysis of highway traffic data using Koopman operator theory, and modeling and analysis of combustion.

B.Tech and M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering at IIT Madras (Class of 2017)
Current focus is on developing operator theoretic methods to predict bursting phenomena.
Mathias Wanner graduated from Villanova University in 2018 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. He will be finishing his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from UCSB in Summer 2020 before continuing for his Ph.D. Mathias joined the Mezic research group in 2019. As an undergraduate Mathias has done research in number theory through the NSF REU program. He is currently working on Koopman operator theory for random dynamical systems and new dynamic mode decomposition algorithms used to model those systems. Outside the lab, Mathias is an avid golfer, and also enjoys sailing and fishing.
