I am a postdoc researcher at the Department of Automatic Control since January 2013. During the academic year 2013-2014 I am pursuing my postdoc studies at Stanford University. My research interests include distributed optimization, distributed control, and model predictive control.

Teaching and Course Development

Lecturer in Systems Engineering and Automatic Process Control, spring 2013.

I developed a laboratory exercise covering optimal control of a pendulum system, see below for pendulum movies. The laboratory exercise is part of the course in Nonlinear Control and Servo Systems.
