Research Interests

Javier Puig-Navarro is a PhD student in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). He earned a MS in aerospace engineering from the Polytechnical University of Valencia, Spain. During the last year of the MS program, he was an exchange student at UIUC, where he completed his MS thesis. His research interests are cooperative strategies for unmanned aerial vehicles, autonomous aerial systems, robust nonlinear controls, and its applications to flight control systems and optimization and management of the national airspace.
