Thursday, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m., room 2.244.
During the semester break, the weekly office hour on Thursday is paused. You are welcome to contact me to schedule a private appointment.
The research focus of my group is on fundamental questions pertaining modelling, analysis, and control of uncertain linear and nonlinear dynamical systems. We pursue research on both model- and data-based approaches, convinced that reconciling these two viewpoints and leveraging the respective strengths is key to achieve safety and reduce conservatism for efficient and optimal operation of complex systems. The basic research questions we explore lie at the intersection of control theory, optimization and learning and include: data-driven control theory; system identification; uncertainty quantification; optimization; robust control; dynamical systems theory.
The overarching goal of our research is to foster trustworthy autonomy by contributing to progress on the design of intelligent systems for a sustainable society, especially in the fields of energy and transportation systems and industry 4.0.
The three main research areas we are focusing on at the moment are
- System identification and data-driven modelling
- Learning-based control
- Sequential decision making in dynamical systems
Additional information such as updates from the group, a complete list of publications and project descriptions are available on my personal webpage.
