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.

10 December 2022 - Online Feedback Optimization is running on the Swiss grid!
The distribution grid of AEW Energie AG is currently being controlled by an online feedback optimization controller to provide better voltage quality, safer operation, and lower costs. This new control method has been developed in the last years in our lab, and most of the work was performed by our excellent students Adrian Hauswirth and Lukas Ortmann.
More info on these methods can be found here. Info about the projects that made this possible are here.
5 December 2022 - CDC Workshop on "Skills and Perspectives for Early Career Development"
For those of you that want to start their career in research and care about making their group diverse, respectful, and more attractive to the brightest minds. It's an exciting program with lot of great contributions, thanks to the organization work by Silvia Mastellone, Roy Smith, Dennice Gayme, Hideaki Ishii, Afef Fekih, and myself.
