I am a technician, but I have technique only inside technique.
Outside it I am mad, with every right to be so.
With every right to be so, did you hear me?

My main research interests cover a range of topics which could be described as a modern systems theory. In particular, I'm interested in modeling, analysis, and control of real-time, embedded, networked and distributed cyber-physical systems. Other research interests include geometrical nonlinear control and mathematical systems theory.
