Expert in nonlinear control
Specialist in flying machines from tiny drones to big aircraft

Since January 2019 I am Assistant Professor at Rutgers University, NJ in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

Before that I was working for the French Aerospace Lab called ONERA in Toulouse, perhaps the best place to conduct aeronautical research in Europe. There I managed several projects with French and European grants and worked in close collaboration with companies and laboratories such as Airbus and CNRS on advanced flight control laws. 
I was also giving classes and accompanying students project for the university of Paul Sabatier and engineering schools such as ISAE SUPAERO, ENAC and ENSEEIHT.

POST DOC Position available

The purpose of the project is to develop new control techniques for floating offshore wind turbines, or wind farms, using the discipline of control co-design

May 2020. End of academic year
Congratulations to all the undergraduate students who worked with me throughout this year.
You did a great job despite the lock down ! 
Winter 2020. New Journal Papers

T. Cunis, J-P. Condomines and L. Burlion, "Sum-of-squares flight control synthesis for deep stall recovery", accepted to AIAA Journal of Guidance, Control and Dynamics.

T. Cunis, J-P. Condomines and L. Burlion, "Local stability analysis for large polynomial spline systems", accepted to Automatica.

December 2019. Habilitation (HDR)
I successfully defended my "habilitation" at ISAE-SUPAERO on Monday, December 9th, 2019
Fall 2019. New ARPA-E Grant
A consortium led by Rutgers receives ARPA-E Funding for Transformational Energy Technology. I am responsible for the development of a generic control module aimed at improving the performance and safety of floating wind turbines.


IFAC World Congress, Berlin, July 2020

I m co-organizing the open invited track session entitled "Application of vision information in on-board aircraft systems for civil aviation safety"
