Argyrios Zolotas is a Reader in College of Science and Deputy Director of Research in the School of Engineering. He joined Lincoln in 2014, while previously held academic positions at University of Sussex and Loughborough University, and a Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship at Imperial College London. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Argyrios leads research in the area of integrated systems and control design. He is an expert on feedback control systems analysis and design (robust control and fault tolerant control), sensor configuration for control and fault tolerance, control applications in railway engineering, system complexity and robustness . Also has interests and involvement in work on emerging control applications. To date, he has successfully supervised 6 PhD students to completion and advised 3 FT Research fellows and 1 PT Research assistant on a variety of funded research projects.
Expertise: Robust control, Applications of Fractional Order Control, PID Control, Sensor Configuration/ Controller Structure Selection.

***Looking for a PhD position?***
I am always interested to hearing from candidates passionate about control and motivated to pursue serious postgraduate research studies. If you have strong background in systems and control (or closely related subject) and an inclination towards analytical approaches, feel free to contact me so that we can discuss on possibilities for a research topic.
Open: We are currently heavily involved in the following research area and MSc (by Research) and MPhil/PhD candidates with relevant research interests are welcome-
“THE IMPACT OF FRACTIONAL ORDER METHODS ON RAILWAY VEHICLE CONTROL PERFORMANCE”
However, I am open to discuss topics you are interested in and fit within my expertise.
***—- MSc by Research—- ***
If you would prefer studying for an MSc by research. Topics suggested above can also be tailored for such a purpose. Note that MSc by research is normally 1-year full-time and 2 years part-time. Drop me a line if you are interested to talk about this option.
