Personal profile

Biography

Roger Goodall spent 14 years in industrial research before he took up an academic position in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Loughborough University, where he is currently Professor of Control Systems Engineering on a part-time basis. He took up the part-time professorship at University of Huddersfield in May 2013. His research is concerned with a variety of practical applications of advanced control, usually for high performance electro-mechanical systems. Specific projects are concerned with active railway vehicle suspensions, advanced sensor systems for aircraft flight control systems, and advanced concepts for control technology in general. His projects are characterised by strong industrial collaboration, having worked with companies such as Alstom, BAE Systems, Bombardier Transportation, and this is supported by excellent links with universities and research organizations worldwide.

He is particularly well known internationally for his research in active suspension technology for rail vehicles.
