I am a PhD Student at the Automatic Control Laboratory at ETH Zürich under the supervision of Prof. Florian Dörfler. I am part of NCCR Automation.

My current research interests include optimal transport and gradient flows in the Wasserstein space, with applications in robust optimization and game theory.

I regularly offer student projects: see here if interested.

Short Bio

I received my BSc. and MSc. in Mechanical Engineering with focus in Robotics, Systems, and Control from ETH Zürich in 2016 and 2019, respectively. During my Master's studies, I visited the Massachussets Institute of Technology and wrote my Master's thesis at Stanford University, in Prof. Marco Pavone's Autonomous Systems Lab.
