I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Delft University of Technology in the faculty of Mechanical, Maritime, and Materials Engineering (3ME)  in the Cognitive Robotics (CoR) Department.

My work focuses on real-time model predictive control (MPC) for flight control, maritime transportation, automotive, and robotics. In particular, my main research focuses on the computational aspects of MPC. The main techniques involved in my research are proximal gradient and splitting methods for convex and nonconvex optimization.
