My research involves application of feedback control theory to problems in energy and the environment. Specific research projects include: (1) design of feedback-based responses to anthropogenic climate change, including geoengineering; and (2) control-theoretic integration of renewables and energy storage into the electricity grid
A/Prof. Kellett's research interests are in analysis and design of nonlinear dynamical
power systems, and information and communication theory.
Lawrence Ong received the BEng degree in electrical engineering from the National
University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore, in 2001. He subsequently received the MPhil
degree from the University of Cambridge, UK, in 2004 and the PhD degree from NUS in
Lawrence Ong was with MobileOne, Singapore, as a system engineer from 2001 to 2002. He
was a research fellow at NUS, from 2007 to 2008. From 2008 to 2011, he was a
postdoctoral researcher at The University of Newcastle, Australia.
In 2012, Lawrence Ong was awarded the Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA)
[success rate: 12.8%] by the Australian Research Council (ARC). He is currently a DECRA
fellow at The University of Newcastle.
Duy T. Ngo received the B.Eng. (with First-class Honours and the
University Medal) degree in telecommunication engineering from the
University of New South Wales, Sydney, NSW, Australia in 2007, the
M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering (communication) from the
University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada in 2009, and the Ph.D.
degree in electrical engineering from McGill University, Montreal,
QC, Canada in 2013. His research interest is in the area of radio
resource allocation and interference management for wireless
communications systems, with recent emphasis on dense small-cell
My research interests are in the areas of constrained optimisation
problems as they occur in the fields of system identification,
control, signal processing and telecommunications. My interests also
include estimation of parameter values for mathematical models of
dynamic systems using measurements of the systems input/output

Codec for an AWGN on an FPGA. Current research MPC and VLSI implementation of
Elizabeth completed her B Engineering (Electrical) degree in 2006 with 1st class honours at
the University of Newcastle. She was a recipient of an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA)
and CSIRO top-up scholarship in September 2011. She has approximately 7 years of
industrial experience in power engineering.
Elizabeth is currently investigating a demand management framework to mitigate the grid
challenges associated with large-scale uptake of residential solar photovoltaic (PV).
Behzad Asadi received the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering
the University of Tehran in 2008. From 2008 to 2010, he was a
Research Associate at WMC Laboratory,
University of Tehran and from 2011 to 2013 he was with ZTE
Corporation as a Solution Manager. Currently, he is pursuing his
degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Newcastle.
interests include Information and Coding Theory, and Signal
Processing in Wireless Networks.
