Scientific interests

My current research is mainly focused on:

  • Set-theory and invariance Set-theoretic methods, invariance and contractivity for nonlinear systems. Estimation of the domain of attraction. Lyapunov-Set induced functions. Invariant subspaces.

  • Hybrid and switched systems Quadratic stability analysis of hybrid and reset systems. Stabilizability and nonconvex Lyapunov functions for discrete-time switched linear systems.

  • Saturated systems Convex set-induced Lyapunov functions for saturated systems. Sufficient and necessary conditions for convergence based on convex analysis.

  • Predictive control Design and application of predictive control strategies for energy and mobile vehicles.

  • Biological systems Modelling ad control for anesthesia and cancer dynamics.
