Research Interests

My current research is in distributed optimization algorithms for control of large-scale networked systems. I am interested in algorithms for distributed model predictive control that are globally optimal and perform in real time on physical embedded platforms with nontrivial communication lag. Applications of interest include building thermal control, general constrained network flow problems, and optimal ramp metering for traffic control.
