Dr Andres Marcos


Andrés Marcos is from Córdoba, Spain. Received his Aerospace Engineering B.Sc. from St. Louis University (USA) in 1997 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2000 and 2004 respectively from the University of Minnesota (USA) in the group of prof. Gary Balas. From 2004 to 2006, he was a research associate in the group of prof. Ian Postlethwaite at the University of Leicester (UK) working in a Group for Aeronautical Research and Technology in Europe (GARTEUR) project related to nonlinear flight control clearance.

From 2006 to August 2013 he was with Deimos-Space S.L.U. (Spain) working as lead control engineer for control and autonomy research and development projects for the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Community (EC).

During his time at Deimos he was coordinator of the EU-FP7 project entitled “Advanced Fault Diagnosis for Sustainable Flight Guidance and Control (ADDSAFE)” [], and from January 2013 he was coordinating the EU-FP7 project entitled “Reconfiguration of Control in Flight for Integral Global Upset Recovery (RECONFIGURE)” []. Both projects were established to study and transfer model-based FDIR techniques to commercial aircraft and are participated by Airbus as well as several European research organizations and universities.

He joined the Aerospace Engineering department at the University of Bristol in October 2013, where he focuses on robust control techniques applied to fault detection, fault tolerant control and flight control of aerospace vehicles; as well as flight control Verification and Validation (V&V) and research on linear fractional transformation (LFT) and linear parameter varying (LPV) techniques for modeling, design and analysis.
