I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student working with Dr. Edwin Yaz in the Modeling, Analysis, Control and Estimation (MACE) Group at EECE Department, Marquette University, where I work on deep learning based computer vision, state/parameter estimation theory and its applications.

Computer vision & Deep Learning: I have 3 years academic experience in deep learning based image classification, object detection, video analysis, and milti-object tracking using state-of-the-art deep learning techniques.

State & Parameter Estimation: I have over 5 years of research experience in state estimation and parameter identification using Kalman filter (and its variants like EKF, SPKF) based techniques.

Research

I'm interested in computer vision, especially using different deep learning methods to solve video based computer vision problems such as human behaviors recognition and object detection.
I'm also interested in state and parameter estimation theory, especially its applications in different areas. In particular, I did a lot of reaearch on estimating State-of-Charge (SOC) and State-of-Health (SOH) of Lithium-ion cells using estimation theory. I'm also working on multi-target tracking problem in surveillance camera systems, which combines computer vision and state estimation problem together.

Abstract:Accurate detection of abnormal behavior can help improve public safety. In this work, a 3D convolutional neural network (CNN) is implemented to detect violence captured by surveillance cameras. A comprehensive study of model hyper-parameter tuning is addressed to show competitive violence detection results using a general action recognition CNN without modifying the original architecture. Experimental results on three publicly available benchmark datasets show that the proposed method outperforms other sophisticated techniques designed specifically to detect violence in videos. Our analysis further indicates that reasonable network parameter adjustments can be an effective mechanism to guide the design of computer vision models in abnormal human behavior detection.

Simultaneous State of Charge and Total Capacity Estimation of Lithium-ion Cells Using Multiple Model Adaptive Estimation

Accepted to Conference on Control Technology and Applications (CCTA), 2022

Abstract:Accurate State of Charge (SOC) and total capacity estimation are needed to ensure effective performance monitoring of Lithium-ion battery management systems. In this work, a Multiple Model Adaptive Estimation (MMAE) technique is implemented to estimate SOC and cell total capacity simultaneously with an Enhanced Self-Correcting (ESC) model. In MMAE technique, conditional probabilities of all possible capacity values are computed to find the most probable cell capacity estimate, and SOC estimate is then calculated based on the given probabilities. Simulation results for a LiFePO4 Lithium-ion cell demonstrate that MMAE technique provides smaller estimation error compared to Joint and Dual estimation techniques.

Abstract: Lithium-ion battery cells are widely used in a variety of applications. An accurate online estimation technique to determine the State of Charge (SOC) can improve the safety of Lithium-ion cells, their performance and life cycle. However, nonlinear cell models bring many estimation challenges. In this work, an estimation technique which combines the Multiple Model Adaptive Estimation (MMAE) and Extended Kalman filter (EKF) is introduced. The combination of these two techniques improves the SOC estimation accuracy and avoids each technique’s drawback. Simulation results for a LiFePO4 Lithium-ion cell demonstrate that this combined technique provides smaller estimation error compared to either MMAE or EKF alone.

Online State of Charge Estimation of Lithium-ion Battery Cells: A Multiple Model Adaptive Estimation Approach

American Control Conference (ACC), 2021

Abstract: Accurate state of charge (SOC) estimation of Lithium-ion battery cells is critical since they are commonly used in a variety of applications. However, the complex chemical reactions inside the cell makes its model nonlinear, which increases the difficulty of the SOC estimation. An accurate online estimation technique to determine the SOC estimate can improve the safety of Lithium-ion cells. More importantly, cell performance and life cycle can also be improved. In this work, the nonlinear state estimation problem of determining SOC is converted to a linear estimation problem solved in a parallel fashion. Multiple model adaptive estimation (MMAE) technique based on a bank of Kalman filters is used to adaptively estimate the SOC. Simulation results for a LiFePO4 Lithium-ion battery cell demonstrate that this technique provides smaller estimation error compared to the Extended Kalman filter.

Sensor and Actuator Intrusion Detection for Cyber-Physical Systems via Adaptive Estimation Algorithm
Jiayi Su, Yuqin Weng, Susan Schneider, Edwin Yaz,
Dynamic Systems and Control Conference (DSCC), 2020

Abstract: In this work, a new approach to detect sensor and actuator intrusion for Cyber-Physical Systems using a bank of Kalman filters is presented. The case where the unknown type of the intrusion signal is considered first, using two Kalman filters in a bank to provide the conditional state estimates, then the unknown type of intrusion signal can be detected properly via the adaptive estimation algorithm. The case where the target (either sensor or actuator) of the intrusion signal is unknown is also considered, using four Kalman filters in a bank designed to detect if the intrusion signal is about to affect healthy sensor or actuator signal. To test these methods, a DC motor speed control system subject to attack by different types of sensor and actuator signals is simulated. Simulations show that different types of sensor and actuator intrusion signals can be detected properly without the knowledge of the nature and the type of these signals.

Accelerated Detection Method for Sensor and Actuator Intrusions in Cyber-Physical Systems Using Multiple Model Estimation Algorithm

Abstract: Although Cyber-Physical Systems play a critical role in industrial production and our daily life, the safety of the CPS sensor and actuator signals have not been given due attention. In our previous work, a new approach which successfully detects CPS sensor and actuator intrusion using the multiple model estimation (MME) algorithm with a bank of Kalman filters was described. Since the earlier detection is of importance in such applications, in the present paper, an accelerated detection method using the fading memory technique is applied to the MME resulting in significant faster detection of intrusion signals. To verify the algorithm introduced in this paper, a DC motor speed control system subject to attack by different types of sensor and actuator signals is simulated. Simulations verify that the addition of the fading memory technique allows for the faster detection of sensor and actuator intrusions.
