I am a PhD student at IfA and PSL under the supervision of Prof. Florian Dörfler and Prof. Gabriela Hug.
I have obtained my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from EPFL and my M.Sc. in Robotics, Systems & Control from ETH Zurich.
In my research I combine elements of dynamical systems, variational analysis and differential geometry to study nonlinear, non-convex optimization problems. A particular focus is the application to the autonomous operation of future power systems with large renewable energy infeed.
