Research

My interest spans several aspects of stochastic adaptive control, decision-making, learning and inference in large-scale networked dynamical systems. Major technical thrust areas include stochastic analysis, distributed stochastic approximation, distributed algorithms, large deviations. Application domains include power networks and smart energy systems.

Awards

  • 2011 A.G. Milnes Award for the Ph.D. thesis of exceptational quality that is likely to have a significant impact in the field of electrical and computer engineering
