Dr. Daniel Herber’s research interests are in the areas of computational design, design optimization, model-based systems engineering, system architecture synthesis, architecture graph representations and enumeration, combined physical and control system design (control co-design), and numerical methods for optimal control concentrated around the development of novel theory and tools for integrated design methods conducive to emerging and dynamic engineering systems.
Herber’s work has involved several engineering application domains, including the design of offshore wind/wave energy systems, carbon capture systems combined with thermal storage and natural gas plants, aero-actuation systems, thermal management networks for aircraft, strain-actuated solar arrays for reorienting spacecraft, vehicle suspensions, and electrical circuits and continues to expand.
