Congratulations to Nishanth, Anvar, and Tim!
Nishanth finished his MS project on the characterization of ultra-thin gauge electric steel laminations.
Nishanth is continuing in our research group, working toward a PhD in electric machine design for off-highway vehicles. You can read more about Nishanth’s PhD work in these publications:

Anvar is continuing in our research group to pursue a PhD in advanced actuation of bearingless motors.
Dr. Tim Slininger, our first post-doctoral researcher, has just wrapped up his position and is joining MIT’s Lincoln Labs.
Tim will work in the Control and Autonomous Systems Engineering Group (Group 76). Lincoln Labs works with sponsors, including the DoD, NASA, DHS, and FAA, to mature prototypes and technology demonstrators from the very theoretical stage to proven working designs. Group 76 collaborates with research groups around the Lab to supply expertise in areas such as robotics, controls, image processing, machine learning, and space-qualified electronics.
Tim was working with us on applying physics-based motor control techniques to magnetic levitation systems. Publications from his time with us include the following (with several more forthcoming):
