About me

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.
