The Electromechanical Systems Group harnesses energy conversion processes. We are interested in inventing.  We are interested in attacking any engineering problem whose solution will enhance quality of life, improve the efficiency and performance of a useful electromechanical process, or minimize the environmental impact associated with electromechanical energy conversion.  We are interested in anything that moves. We design and apply embedded control systems, power electronic circuits, power systems, analog and digital circuits, and new materials for sensors and actuators.
