Research interests

I received the Laurea degree in Aeronautical Engineering in 2000 and the Ph.D. degree in Automatic Control and System Theory in 2004 from the University of Palermo, Italy. Since 2018 I have been with the Jan C. Willems Center for Systems and Control, ENTEG, Faculty of Science and Engineering, University of Groningen (The Netherlands), where I am currently Full Professor and Chair of Operations Research for Engineering Systems. Since 2005 I have also been with the Dipartimento di Ingegneria, University of Palermo (Italy). From 2015 to 2018 I was with the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, The University of Sheffield (UK), where I was Reader in Control and Systems Engineering. From 2012 to 2014 I was also Research Fellow at the Department of Mathematics, University of Trento (Italy). Since 2018 I have been guest professor at Keio University, Japan.

I have been academic visitor in several universities. From October 2001 to June 2002, I was a Visiting Scholar at the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, University of California, Los Angeles (USA). In 2010 I was short-term visiting scholar at the Department of Automatic Control of Lund University (Sweden) and at the Laboratory of Information and Decision Systems of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA). In 2013 I was visiting lecturer at the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford (UK) and at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of Imperial College London (UK). 

My research interests are in the field of Optimization, Optimal and Distributed Control, and Game Theory. From 2010 to 2018 I was member of the Conference Editorial Board of the IEEE Control Systems Society. I have served as associate editor of `flag’ journals in control and games: IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control (2012-17) and IFAC Automatica (2015-21) and IEEE Control Systems Letters (2017-2021), Springer Journal Dynamic Games and Applications (2011-23), AIMS Journal of Dynamics and Games (2019-today).
