Welcome to the DISCO Group

The Dynamic Intelligent Systems, Control and Optimization (DISCO) Group is jointly directed by Dr. Beibei Ren and Dr. Jordan Berg. Our vision is to push the boundaries of control theory for systems with model uncertainties and external disturbances; and explore the impacts of control in broad applications, including renewable energies and grid integration, microgrids, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), MEMS, marine/offshore systems and manufacturing systems, etc.
