Welcome to my webpage! I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick in UK. I am associated with the Connected Systems Lab research group.

The easiest way to reach me is by e-mail : Subhash DOT Lakshminarayana AT warwick DOT ac DOT uk.

I am currently looking for highly motivated students to pursue PhD in the field of cyber-physical system security. Please refer to the Openings page for more details. 



Research Interests

My research applies modeling, optimization and control-based methods in three broad application areas:
  • Security of Cyber-Physical Systems (Power Grids/Electrified transportation systems)
  • Power grid Optimization and Control
  • Wireless Communications and Signal Processing.
