Herber Research Group

Welcome to Dr. Daniel Herber's research group website!

The Herber Research Group at Colorado State University, headed by Dr. Daniel Herber, focuses on design optimization, model-based systems engineering, system architecture synthesis, combined physical and control system design (control co-design), and numerical optimal control concentrated around the development of novel theory and tools for integrated design methods conducive to emerging and dynamic engineering systems.

The group works in several engineering application domains, including recent projects in offshore wind/wave energy systems, carbon capture combined with thermal storage and natural gas plants, aero-actuation systems, and thermal management networks for aircraft, and continues to expand.
