Currently I am a postdoctoral researcher at GERAD and CIM, McGill University. I received my PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from McGill University in February 2019, under the supervision of Prof. Peter E. Caines. My PhD work focused on the study of analysis and control of very large-scale networks (VLSNs) of multi-agent dynamical systems. A major part of the work pioneered exact and approximate (centralized and collaborative) control methodologies for linear dynamical systems on VLSNs based on graphon theory and the theory of infinite dimensional systems, a topic now called Graphon Control theory.
My postdoctoral work is on theoretical extensions, low-complexity solution methods and applications of Graphon Control and Graphon Mean Field Games theory. My other research interests include distributed and decentralized control, network modeling, and learning on large-scale networks.
