I joined IfA in July 2017 working with Prof. John Lygeros. My main research interests lie in distributed optimization, game theory and related mechanisms design, with particular applications to smart power systems, demand response and coordination of electric vehicles. Current interests include dynamic and stochastic game, distributed optimization in distribution systems with high penetration of renewables, and learning methods for grid power managements.
