Dr Alejandro Donaire


I received the Electronic Engineering and PhD degrees in 2003 and 2009, respectively, from the National University of Rosario, Argentina. My work was supported by the Argentine National Council of Scientific and Technical Research, CONICET. In 2009, I joined the Centre for Complex Dynamic Systems and Control at The University of Newcastle, Australia. From 2015 to March 2017 I was with the PRISMA Lab at the University of Naples Federico II, Italy. In 2017, I took a research fellow position at the Institute for Future Environments, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Queensland University of Technology, Australia. In 2019, I joined the School of Engineering, The University of Newcastle, Australia, where I conducts my academic activities.


My research interests include nonlinear dynamics and control theory with application to autonomous systems, mechatronics, marine and aerospace systems, robotics, networked systems, electrical drives, multi-agent systems, smart micro-grids and power systems.


I have worked in collaboration with industry and Defence. I have conducted research and providing solutions for DST Group, Maritime Division, as well as for international and national industries, e.g. Boeing Research and Technology, Offshore Simulation Centre AS (Norway), Verton Technologies Australia Pty Ltd, Eniquest Pty Ltd.


I have worked with academics and researchers at national and international institutions. I have a very fruitful collaborations with researchers at L2S-Central Supelec- CNRS, France; Prisma Lab, University of Naples Federico II, Italy; Queensland University of Technology, Australia; Uppsala University, Sweden; University of Stuttgart, Germany among others.


I have delivered courses in different programs at several Universities. I thought courses on Mechatronic Systems, Modern Control, Control Theory, Dynamics of Physical Systems and Control, Dynamics and Control of Electrical Drives and Advance Dynamics.
