​Postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Mohamed Ghattassi got a paper accepted on January 25 2018.​ His paper entitled "State observer design for Direct Contact Membrane Distillation Parabolic systems" was accepted at the  2018 AMERICAN CONTROL CONFERENCE. 
In this paper, Ghattassi et. all proposed a state observer for a coupled two dimensional partial differential equations (PDEs) system used to describe the heat transfer in a membrane distillation system for water desalination. The mathematical model based on reaction-diffusion system is introduced. Sufficient conditions for the exponential convergence of the estimation error is presented using Lyapunov method. A numerical example is also provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed observer.​
