I am a Senior Scientist in Prof. Florian Dörfler's group, at the Automatic Control Laboratory of ETH Zurich. I am passionate about applications of networked control theory to complex systems like power grids and autonomous mobility. I care about the efficiency of these systems, but also their fairness. I am currently looking into the intersection between nonlinear optimization and feedback control design, and I always like to learn more about control theory, distributed optimization, stochastic optimization, and game theory.
News and latest talks
9 May 2022 - NCCR Automation Symposium on Systems Theory of Algorithms
Iterative algorithms in optimization, games, and learning are dynamical systems with inputs, outputs, and uncertainty. The symposium explores the systems and control theory behind such algorithms shaping our reality.
My talk: "First-Order and Zeroth-Order Optimization Algorithms as Model-Free Feedback Controllers"
5-7 July 2022 - IFAC Conference on Networked Systems
NecSys22 will take place at ETH in Zurich next summer. It will feature a great list of plenary speakers, an IFAC Young Author Award spotlight presentation, and interactive poster sessions of contributed papers.

3 December 2021 - TecDays presentation in Lugano
Gioele Zardini, Nicolas Lanzetti, and I contributed to the TecDays event at the Liceo Lugano 2 with an interactive activity on game theory, future mobility, mathematical models of equilibria and competition, and more. Thank you to Giuseppe Belgioioso and Christian Hartnik for their help!
