Congratulations to Paul on his PhD

Paul Trodden passed his PhD viva in August and has now completed the few corrections asked. Paul's PhD, sponsored by BAE Systems and an EPSRC CASE award, looked at robust distributed model predictive control (MPC). In particular, he developed ways to promote cooperation between agents, instead of greediness.

Paul will be staying on to work on a new ESA-funded project on MPC for spacecraft rendezvous.
