Associate Professor, Department of Mathematical and Industrial Engineering, Polytechnique Montréal
I obtained my co-supervised PhD in Systems Engineering from Mines ParisTech, France, and the Faculty of Engineering of Genoa, Italy. My thesis deals with the optimization of a green hydrogen supply chain and developing decision support systems for the selection of potential sites for hydrogen production from renewables. One of the main contributions was developing comprehensive optimization models for the strategic planning and optimal operation of hydrogen refuelling stations. After completing my PhD, I worked as a research assistant at the Department of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics and System Engineering, at the Faculty of Engineering of Genoa, developing distributed control theory approaches for networked systems. I joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at ÉTS Montréal as an institutional researcher in 2013, where my main research activities were related to developing optimization models for power systems and renewable energy-based systems.
In 2017, I joined the Department of Mathematics and Industrial Engineering at Polytechnique Montréal, where I am currently an associate professor. I am particularly interested in the theory of distributed optimization algorithms and their applications to microgrids, smart buildings and electric-vehicle charging infrastructure. My research interests also include developing machine-learning techniques for energy management in buildings and smart charging of electric vehicles. In addition, I am interested in techno-economical modelling and operational planning of renewable energy-based systems, demand response and electric transportation.
My main reason for joining GERAD is to expand my collaborations with other members and to develop new joint projects. I also want to allow my students to gain valuable insights into varied components of their research by enriching their interactions with other graduate students and by attending seminars and talks regularly. This is a good opportunity for them to discuss their research with international experts, and more importantly, to meet visitors and other students and thereby develop their network of contacts.
Several GERAD researchers appear in a ranking of research citations created in August 2021 and published on the Mendeley website, a search tool belonging to Elsevier, the Dutch scientific publisher.
