Manas Dilip Mejari

I am a Ph.D. student in the Dynamical Systems, Control and Optimization (DYSCO) research unit of IMT School for Advanced Studies, Lucca, under the supervison of Prof. Alberto Bemporad and Dr. Dario Piga.  My research interests include system identification, machine learning and control theory. I was a visiting researcher at the Control System group of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e, netherlands), under the supervision of Dr. Roland Toth, from February to July 2017.
