My research interests include aircraft flight dynamics, handling qualities, and model-based design and optimisation. Recently, my research and teaching are focus on the helicopter, UAV, and Urban-Air-Mobility systems. I firmly believe that electric VTOL technology will become a promising area in the future, which could not only be convenient for everyone’s life but also contribute to reducing the carbon-emission.
