Research Summary

My research focuses on the broad area of modeling and optimization of nonlinear dynamical systems, with emphasis on energy systems such as buildings, district-heating networks, HVAC systems and automotive systems. My multidisciplinary research approach is based on the integration of thermo-fluid sciences with dynamic systems, optimization and control. Emerging fields of research that I am investigating include model order reduction of nonlinear Partial Differential Equations, with application to compressible fluid flow systems, application of model-based optimal control of nonlinear and hybrid systems for energy systems optimization.
