Maruthi R.
Associate Professor
Aerospace Engineering & Engineering Mechanics

Dr. Akella specializes in the control of complex dynamical systems that are subject to large scale nonlinearities and uncertainties. Dr. Akella’s current research encompasses control theoretic investigations and experimental validation of a wide variety of complex engineered dynamical systems that include autonomous space vehicles and mobile robots; flow-control systems for high-speed and hypersonic vehicles; miniature robots navigating inside GPS denied environments; uncertainty quantification; and cooperative control and collaborative sensing problems in swarm robots. His theoretical contributions have found several highly successful applications in astrodynamics and in the control of space systems and vision-guided robotics.
