Dr. Sami El Ferik


I am an Associate Professor in Control and Instrumentation, Department of Systems Engineering, at KFUPM. I obtained my B.Sc in Electrical Engineering from Laval University, Quebec Canada, and my M.S and Ph.D both in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Ecole Polytechnique, University of Montreal, Montreal, Canada. My Ph.D. work, on flexible manufacturing systems modeling and control, was co-supervised with Mechanical Engineering. After completion of my Ph.D and Post-doctor positions, I worked with Pratt and Whitney Canada as a Staff Control Analyst at the Research and Development Center of Systems, Controls, and Accessories. My research interests are in sensing, monitoring, and control with strong multidisciplinary research and applications. My research contributions are in control of drug administration, process control and control loop performance monitoring, control of systems with delays, modeling and control of stochastic systems, analysis of network stability, condition monitoring, and condition-based maintenance...
