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 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

Habilitation (HDR)
I successfully defended my "habilitation" at ISAE-SUPAERO on Monday, December 9th, 2019 
The IEEE Conference on Decision and Control 2019 was a success !

We presented the following papers: 

T. Cunis, D. Liao-MacPherson, J-P Condomines, L Burlion, I. Kolmanovsky,” Economic Model Predictive Control Strategies for Aircraft Deep-stall Recovery with Stability Guarantees”.

L. Burlion, M. Malisoff and M. Mazenc,” Stabilization and robustness analysis for a chain of saturating integrators arising in the visual landing of aircraft”.
