I am an Assistant Professor in Water & Control at TU Delft’s Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences. My research interests are mainly in the application of mathematical optimisation, control and systems theory to advance water management and environmental engineering and their nexuses with energy and agricultural systems. Some of my research deals with predictive control of pumped open canal systems, operational optimisation of multipurpose cascade reservoirs, optimisation and control for irrigation and water allocation, optimisation of cropping patterns and infrastructure assessment - most within the context of the water-energy-food nexus. Within urban water systems, my research deals with optimal control and fault diagnosis for drinking water distribution networks, and the urban nexus of heating systems, and energy transitions.
Before joining TU Delft, I was a Research Associate at the Environmental and Water Resources Engineering Group of Imperial College London. I have a PhD in Control Engineering (Aeronautics) and a first class honours MEng degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. I received both the MEng and PhD degrees from Imperial College London, UK, in 2008 and 2013, respectively.
