Dr. Davies' research interests are in the
general area of system modelling and control design.
Emphasis has been on applications to pulp and paper processes, especially paper
machines, and to electromechanical systems. Major current projects are the
control loop performance monitoring, the wavelet analysis of paper machine
cross machine and machine directions process variations from scanned data, and
the modelling of paper machine wet end process
