Research Interests
Dr. Lemmon's research seeks to better understand the benefits and limitations of large-scale, networked control systems from both a theoretical and practical perspective. His theoretical work attempts to understand the fundamental principles that limited communication and computational resources have on a networked system's performance. Dr. Lemmon's work also has applied these ideas to real-life sensor-actuator networks used in managing important components of the nation's civil infrastructure, such as municipal wastewater sewer systems and the national power grid.
