His internationally renowned scientific contributions related to machine tool technology can be found below.
Main fields of research related to machining technology
- Stability Islands: Isolated parameter domains of stable cutting for high-speed milling
- Micro-Chaos: Small amplitude chaotic oscillations originated in small-scale strong nonlinearities such as contact loss
- Act-and-Wait Control: Stabilization of delayed systems with parametric excitation
- Semi-Discretization of Delayed Systems: A powerful numerical technique for time-periodic time-delayed systems such as high-speed milling
- Fly-over Effect: Loss of contact between tool and workpiece during unstable cutting leading to micro-chaos
