My work has never followed the conventional path, ranging around four different disciplines: control engineering, computer science, mathematics and network science. Hence, I am highly multi-disciplinary, mixing theory and practice, dissolving the boundaries of different disciplines and application domains. My current research is focused on hybrid dynamical systems and complex network systems. I am pushing the boundaries and bringing together three separate disciplines: formal methods of computer science, control methodologies and dynamical-systems tools to control complex systems and networks. I am devising DYVERSE, a general mathematical-computational-control framework for complex systems. As a control engineer, I cannot make theoretical contributions without applications in real-world problems. The systems considered in my research are wide-ranging: from mechanical systems to distribution networks, from power electronics to cell sorting, from neuronal networks to ecological networks.

Recent activities

  • Tenure at the Houses of Parliament in November 2009, under the framework of the Royal Society Member of Parliament-Scientist Pairing Scheme. Participation in this scheme from October 2009-May 2010. Awarded to some of the best research scientists in the UK (as The Royal Society establishes) to promote the importance of Science in government policies and bring scientists' expertise to the Houses of Parliament. I liaised with different government agencies and sat in parliamentary select committees related to science and technology.
  • Contributor to the exhibition "Alan Turing and Life's Enigma" in the Manchester Museum about Alan Turing's morphogenesis. From 24th March to 18th November 2012. Part of the Manchester Science Festival.

Other inspirational activities:

  • Inspirational talk "Equal, however, less... don't be afraid to make the difference" to encourage female undergraduates and postgraduates to develop their careers in science, engineering and technology, by invitation from the WiSET network (Women in Science, Engineering and Technology). 29th April, 2009. Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, The University of Manchester.
