Personal profile

Research interests

My interests include optimal control, game theory and their application to the smart grid. My research activity focuses on the design of novel control and market solutions for the deployment of a sustainable and decarbonized electricity grid. In 2016 I was awarded a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship to investigate novel game-theory application for future power network paradigms.

Main research topics include:

- Distributed methods for large-scale deployment of storage and demand response

- Novel market paradigms for transmission investments

- Mean field games and aggregative games

- Optimal control applications for renewable generation

Teaching interests

My main teaching interests are in the area of power systems, with a particular focus on their fundamental components and on their risk and reliability aspects. My teaching activity has also included laboratory activities for practical applications of basic control theory concepts and the presentation of the latest tools and discoveries in the area of game theory.
