My research concerns the analysis and design of resilient and reliable control systems, with particular emphasis on network control systems. Applications of network control systems are ubiquitous; however, I am specifically working on automotive and intelligent transportation systems.
I am a program committee member at IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Systems (IEEE ICAS 2021).
I taught an online course on "Resilient Networked Control Systems", Southeast University, China.
I organized an "Online Workshop on the Security of Cyber-Physical Systems", KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
I gave a talk at Carleton University on "A control-theoretic approach to the resilience of connected vehicles".
We will be organizing a workshop on the resilience and controllability of large-scale networks in CDC 2019, Nice, France.
I gave a talk at the University of Windsor on "Connected vehicles: challenges and future directions".
Our survey paper in systems and control perspective of CPS security has appeared in Annual Reviews in Control.
Our papers on game-theoretic approaches to the security of networked control systems have been accepted for presentation in ACC 2019 and ECC 2019.
