I am interested in the modeling, analysis, and control of multi-agent systems where self-interested agents take autonomous decisions. I leverage theoretical models and real world studies to shed light on the societal impact of self-interested decision making. Visit my research webpage for more information.

Applications: intelligent mobility and electricity markets.
Keywords: game theory, optimization, algorithms, control and network theory.
