Rollen S. D’Souza is currently a PhD Candidate in Electrical & Computer Engineering specializing in the theory of nonlinear control design at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. He is supervised by Prof. Chris Nielsen.

What exactly does he research?

Currently Rollen investigates an application of exterior differential systems to solving feedback equivalence problems. These are problems that appear in designing nonlinear control laws for nonlinear systems such as those that model the physical (Newtonian) dynamics of a robotic arm.
