Control And Automation PhD Award winner is announced
After careful consideration, the judging committee has agreed to award the prize to Sandira Gayadeen for her thesis on 'Synchrotron Electron Beam Control'. Sandira achieved her PhD from University of Oxford, UK in August 2014. The committee were particularly impressed by the successful application of advanced control techniques to this rather novel, and somewhat unusual, field of research. The thesis application scored high on both theoretical and practical aspects of research and its possible extensions to other fields. The references provided were of high quality and gave further insights into the contributions made and their importance to other ongoing work in field elsewhere in the UK, Europe and US.
Dr. Sandira Gayadeen was awarded a DPhil degree by the University of Oxford in 2014. She is currently a postdoctoral research assistant with the Control Group at Oxford. Her research focuses on the design and analysis of controllers to achieve optimal performance of particle accelerators. Her work is in collaboration with Diamond Light Source, the...
