Research Interests

My research focuses on the development of the theory and practice of reachability analysis for continuous systems using the COntinuous Reachability Analyzer (CORA), with a particular emphasis on problems arising in future power systems, commonly known as Smart-Grid systems. You can check the progress of the PhD project on ROCS-Grid.

Contact me if you are looking for a B.Sc./M.Sc. thesis (or seminars). We can discuss possible topics in the areas of control systems, smart grids, and power systems.
