Research interests

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.
