Research Interests

My research focuses mainly on machine learning and optimal control.
I apply my research in areas such as brain computer interfaces, social networks and smart grid.

I am currently involved in the CompLACS project and recently joined the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona as a UPFellows
