About me

Since Feb 2019, I am Director of the KTH Digitalisation Platform

Research Interests

I am interested in optimal algorithmic designs and fundamental bounds in different areas.  

  • Information theory, in particular
    network information theory and physical-layer security and privacy
  • Statistical signal processing, in particular
    (distributed) statistical inference, self-learning sensor calibration
  • Learning, in particular
    re-inforcement learning and privacy-preserving machine learning approaches 
  • Smart Grid, in particular
    smart meter privacy, energy storage models, optimal energy management policies
  • Wireless communication, in particular 
    signal processing & algorithms for transmitter and receiver design
  • Networked control, in particular
    optimal decision strategies, necessary and sufficient conditions for stability
