Distributed decision making and control with applications to cyber-physical and societal systems, networks, and robotics

Research Interests


Yazicioglu Research Site

My research is primarily focused on distributed control, optimization, and learning with applications to cyber-physical systems, networks, and robotics. I am particularly interested in developing novel theory and algorithms for distributed/networked systems, where one of the main objectives is to achieve a desired global performance through the local interactions of autonomous agents with partial information about the overall system. The theoretical foundation of my research lies mainly in the areas of systems and control, game theory, optimization, learning, and graph theory.
