Our group studies large, distributed, and networked dynamical systems with diverse applications, including investigation of feedback and dynamics in biology and traffic control in smart cities. The system size and complexity in these applications are beyond the reach of traditional control synthesis and verification methods, and call for novel analytical and computational tools. Our broad approach is to obtain system-level guarantees from appropriate abstractions of the components with compositional and hierarchical procedures, and to exploit the structural systems properties for computational efficiency. We uncover such properties in applications and generalize them to broader classes of systems. Please follow the link to Research Areas on the left for a summary of current projects.
