Hello, I am glad to see you landing on my profile!

I am passionate about being confronted with challenging technical problems and resolving them innovatively. I joined Concordia University as an associate professor in 2020 after a 10-year tenure at Bombardier. My research focuses on developing innovative design methodologies for drones (UAVs) and VTOL aircraft that require demonstrating high safety levels and redundancies, such as urban air taxis, flying ambulances, search and rescue vehicles, and medical or humanitarian delivery drones.

If you wish to do research (MASc, PhD) in my research area, or as an industrial or academic partner, are looking to collaborate on an innovative project, then do not hesitate to contact me !

Teaching activities

AERO 490 Aerospace Capstone Course

In this course, a large team of aerospace engineering students work together to develop an aircraft from scratch during two terms. The project covers all the aspects of a complex multidisciplinary aircraft development and provides theoretical and hands-on experiences in a context representative of the aerospace industry challenges. The results are presented to a panel of academic and industry specialists during the conceptual and preliminary design reviews.

AERO 371 Modelling and Control Systems

This class covers: Modelling of mechanical, electrical and electromechanical aerospace systems using ordinary differential equations, transfer functions and block diagrams; Linearization of non-linear systems; Analysis of the transient characteristics, steady-state characteristics and stability of the system's response using time domain, root-locus, and frequency response methods. Design of linear feedback control systems for stability and performance; Analysis and simulation techniques using Matlab/Simulink.
