Muhammad Umar B Niazi
I'm a postdoc at the Division of Decision and Control Systems, EECS, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, where I have the privilege to work with Prof. Karl H. Johansson. Currently, I am on my Marie-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship at MIT, US, where I am supervised by Prof. Munther Dahleh.
My research has primarily focused on the estimation and control of networked systems. Lately, I've been delving into the challenges of information and mechanism design for complex socio-technical systems, exploring how these principles can be applied in a variety of fields, such as urban mobility and epidemic outbreaks.
I earned my Ph.D. in Automatic Control Engineering from the University of Grenoble Alpes, France, where I also had the opportunity to be affiliated with Inria Grenoble and Gipsa-Lab (CNRS) as a Graduate Research Engineer. I also had the opportunity to visit the Jan C. Willems Center for Systems and Control at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, in October 2018. Before that, I earned my M.S. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University, Turkey, and my B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, Pakistan.
