About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Automatic Control since January 2020. I currently work on the modelling and control of district heating and cooling networks through the project Scalable Control of Interconnected Systems.

I was previously a PhD student at ONERA, Toulouse (France), from 2016 to 2019. My work consisted in proposing a new data-driven control design technique in the frequency-domain. I received my PhD in October 2019 from ISAE-SUPAERO, Toulouse, France. My PhD thesis is available here.

I obtained my engineering degree from Ecole Centrale de Lyon in 2016 after a year as an exchange student in UNICAMP (Brazil) at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer science (FEEC).

My research interests are control, system theory, model order reduction and system identification.

For more information on my research, you can visit my Google scholar to see my publications.

Here is a complete CV.
