I am currently a Lecturer in the Automatic Control Group of Prof. Daniel Quevedo at the Universität Paderborn. Before, I was a Postdoc in the Automatic Control and Systems Theory Group at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and in the Control Group at the University of Oxford, where I primarily worked with Prof. Mark Cannon. I received a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Martin Mönnigmann.
My research interests include optimal control (linear and nonlinear MPC, explicit MPC, event-triggered MPC, CLQR, time-optimal control), encrypted control (homomorphic encryption), constrained control (invariant sets, stabilizability, controllability), robust control (robust invariant sets, robust MPC), sampled-data systems (guaranteed constraint satisfaction), global optimization (convex underestimators), and scientific computing (interval arithmetic, automatic differentation). Applications include steam turbines, geothermal power plants, and wind turbines.
