About me

I am a Ph.D. student in the Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) advised by Prof. Tamás Keviczky, since 1st September 2014.

My general research interests are centered around optimal control, stochastic control and distributed control of complex networked systems with applications to energy systems and coordination in multi-agent systems. In particular, my current research focuses on various centralized and decentralized problems with and without communication between agents. In addition to this I am interested in finding tractable ways of solving these problems.

Prior to coming to TU Delft, I carried out my MSc thesis at Automatic Control Laboratory (ETH Zurich) on developing a tractable reserve scheduling formulations for power systems with uncertain generation under supervision of Professor John Lygeros and Professor Maria Prandini. My profile on Google Scholar and my Curriculum Vitae.
