Brief information

I graduadeted my Phd at Control Engineering Group at the Luleå University of Technology (LTU) advised by Professor George Nikolakopoulos on 18-Nov-2020. My general research interests are focused on optimization, centralized, decentralized and distributed controllers with coordination in multi-agent systems. Additionally, I visited California Institute of Technology as a visiting student researcher and worked closely with Professor Joel W. Burdick for five months.

My skills include:

  • Distributed/Centralized Model Predictive Control
  • Optimization techniques
  • Dynamic modeling
  • Data base modeling
  • State estimation
  • Reinforcement learning
  • Controller design and implementation

Please do not hesitate to contact. My profile on LinkedIn, Google Scholar and ResearchGate.
