The Landers Research Group conducts fundamental and applied studies of the modeling, analysis, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes, alternative energy systems, and various digital control applications. Current manufacturing processes being investigated are robotic machining, metal and glass direct energy deposition, incremental sheet forming, selective laser melting, and wire saw machining. The group is also investigating the control-oriented modeling, estimation, and fast charging of lithium ion batteries. In the past, the group conducted research in freeze–form extrusion fabrication of ceramics, metal cutting, friction stir welding, and hydrogen fuel cells. Details regarding my professional activities can be found in my resume and a list of my publications, including citations, can be found on my Google Scholar page.

I have an immediate opening for a postdoctoral scholar position in my group. Interested candidates should email me their CV and a cover letter describing their background and qualifications. Further information can be found in the full advertisement.

I am always looking to hire outstanding doctoral students for my research program. Interested students should email me at Include your resume, transcripts (unofficial are fine), GRE and TOEFL (if applicable) scores, and any English language technical publications for which you are the first author.
