    Nicolò Pagan is a Ph.D. candidate in the Automatic Control Laboratory at ETH, Zürich. He joined the institute in January 2016, and works under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Florian Dörfler. Nicolò Pagan received his B.Sc. in Applied Mathematics in 2010 from Polytechnic of Turin, Italy, and the M.Sc. in Computational Science and Engineering in 2013 from Ècole Polytechnique Fèdèrale de Lausanne, Switzerland. He developed his Master Thesis at Ascomp AG, a spin-off of ETH Zürich, in 3D - 1D systems coupling in Computational Fluid-Dynamics. From May 2013 to December 2015, he was Developer Engineer at Ascomp AG, working on coupling related problems for CFD applications and on the Cloud integration of the proprietary software.


Research Interests

    My research interests are at the intersection between Game Theory and Complex Networks. My focus is on game theoretical models of social and economic network formation. Future directions of my research include analysis and modeling of individuals' learning mechanisms in network formation, as well as designing an inverse game theoretical approach capable to reconstruct actors' utilities. More generally, I am interested in Social and Engineering Systems and in problems that correspond to signi cant societal challenges, with an emphasis on areas such as autonomous systems, energy systems, nance, social networks, urban systems, and their underlying interconnections.
