Short Biography

Ngoc Thinh Nguyen received his Engineering degree in Mechatronics from Hochiminh-city University of Technology, Vietnam in 2016 and his PhD in Control Engineering at the Laboratory of Conception and Integration of Systems (LCIS) of Grenoble INP Institute of Engineering and Management, France in 2019.
In 2016, he obtained the ERASMUS scholarship in 2016 for conducting his engineering graduation project and the MERNT grant (from the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation) for pursuing his PhD, both within the laboratory LCIS, France. In 2019, he received the PhD grant InProTUC from Technische Universität Chemnitz within a PhD exchange program.
From February 2020, Ngoc Thinh Nguyen joined the Institute for Robotics and Cognitive Systems as a post-doc researcher within the KI-Lab project from 2020 to the end of 2021 and then, within the KRIBL project from 2022.

Research Interestes

His research interests include modeling and control for nonlinear dynamical systems (especially for mobile robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)), Model Predictive Control designs with stability and feasibility analysis as well as optimal trajectory generation using B-spline parametrization.
