Douglas Famularo (B.S., M.S. Cornell University) successfully defended his Ph.D. dissertation titled “Observer-Based Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion Adaptive Control with State Constraints”. This work is supported by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH, and is focused on the flight control and the prevention of inlet unstart on hypersonic UAS. Doug spent three consecutive summer internships in the Control Science Center at AFRL working on it. Douglas has accepted a controls research position at Aurora Flight Sciences Research and Development Center in Cambridge, MA. Congratulations Doug, all of VSCL is very proud of you and your accomplishments!
