I am a PhD student at Imperial College London, within and the Control and Power research group and the High Performance Embedded and Distributed System (HiPEDS) Centre for Doctoral Training.

My research interests and expertise encompass control and estimation, machine learning, distributed systems, and security. I am currently focusing on distributed attack detection in large-scale interconnected systems employing model-based approaches.

I also work in contact with the Computing department in an attempt to bring the IT and control security communities closer together. In this area, my work involves real-time simulation of physical systems, with the added complexity of an emulated network layer and computation devices implementing industrial protocols.
