My research focuses on the development and the use of stochastic
models and optimization methods for the design of control algorithms
in large-scale systems. I am interested both on theoretical problems
(related to optimization and mathematical modeling) and on the
application of these methods to practical problems.
In my research, I focus on various applications: communication
networks, distributed computing systems, transport systems and
energy management. Currently, my main focus concerns the management
of electrical storage systems. Specifically, I am interested in
centralized and distributed algorithms for the mangement of energy
storage systems. These algorithms aim at compensating for the
volatility associated with renewable energy.
A complete list of my publication is available here . Most of them are accessible via HAL (if not, please send me an email).
