Mr, Dr.

Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

Warmly welcome individuals with a keen interest in multidisciplinary research in the field of Automotive Engineering. My research encompasses a broad range of topics, including but not limited to Vehicle Energy Management, Driver Behavior Modeling, Data-driven Modeling, Learning Systems, Human-Machine Interaction, Shared Control, Platoon Control, Applied Data Science, Multi-Modal Information Fusion, and Physics-Informed Machine Learning.

One of our current research projects, titled "Human-Like Shared and Autonomous Driving of Future Vehicles," offers an opportunity for external or self-funded PhD students. This project aims to investigate and develop advanced driving systems that emulate human-like behaviors in shared and autonomous vehicles.
