My Research



The Global Integrated Drought Monitoring and Prediction System (GIDMaPS) is a drought monitoring and prediction system that provides near real-time drought information based on multiple drought indicators and input data sets.

The Falling Ball Example

The Falling Ball Example

The Falling Ball Example (EBE) is an example of how a seemingly simple and easy-to-understand cyber physical system design can result in a complex design. We believe that the proposed methodology to design and deploy FBE finds application in more complex Cyber Physical Systems (CPSs) and can contribute to the challenging task of designing correct CPSs.

CPS Over The Net

CPS Over The Net

Programming of CPSs is not trivial, since CPSs combine traditional programming challenges and real-world timing, concurrency, and communication. This CPS Over The Net is a programming framework that allows students to implement and test CPS control programs in their Internet browsers.
