           Welcome on my (rather chaotic) homepage! I hope you can find here what you need to find, otherwise please contact me ;-)!


Main research interests:                   
  • Game theory in modeling and control of complex systems (e.g. biological systems, traffic systems, swarm robotic systems)
  • Stackelberg games and inverse Stackelberg games
  • Evolutionary game theory
  • Predator-prey games

I am in the consortium of the recently granted project Four C Modelling. Within this project, I am collaborating with UIC Chicago and Moffitt Cancer Center (Tampa, Florida) on development of game theoretical methods to understand and treat cancer.

I work at the Department of Data Science & Knowledge Engineering. Do you know what the Knowledge Engineering is?
