About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. I am also affiliated with WASP and Digital Futures at KTH.

Before I joined KTH, I was a Postdoctoral Associate and Fellow at MIT with the Laboratory for Information & Decision Systems (LIDS) and the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS) from 2019 to 2023, during which I worked with Prof. Munther Dahleh. At MIT, I was also a course developer & instructor for the MicroMasters Program in Statistics and Data Science (SDS), from 2021 to 2023.

I completed my Ph.D. degree in the Division of Optimization & Systems Theory at KTH in 2019, working with Xiaoming Hu and Johan Karlsson, and received my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Automation, advised by Yu Yao and Songlin Chen, at Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), China.

My research interests include nonlinear control, large-scale complex systems, incentive-driven algorithms, and risk-averse/safe reinforcement learning.
