Biopic

I received the Laurea degree in Aeronautical Engineering in 2000 and the Ph.D. degree in Automatic Control and System Theory in 2004 from the University of Palermo, Italy. Since 2015 I have been with the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, The University of Sheffield (UK), where I am currently Reader in Control and Systems Engineering. Since 2005 I have also been with the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Chimica, Gestionale, Informatica, Meccanica, University of Palermo (Italy), where I am currently Associate Professor of Operations Research.  From 2012 to 2014 I was also Research Fellow at the Department of Mathematics, University of Trento (Italy).

I have been academic visitor in several universities. From October 2001 to June 2002, I was a Visiting Scholar at the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, University of California, Los Angeles (USA). In 2010 I was short-term visiting scholar at the Department of Automatic Control of Lund University (Sweden) and at the Laboratory of Information and Decision Systems of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA). In 2013 I was visiting lecturer at the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford (UK) and at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of Imperial College London (UK).

My research interests are in the field of Optimization, Optimal and Distributed Control, and Game Theory. Since 2010 I am member of the Conference Editorial Board of the IEEE Control Systems Society. I am Associate Editor of Dynamic Games and Applications since 2011, and of IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control since 2013. I have also been general chair of the 6th Spain, Italy, and Netherlands Meeting on Game Theory (SING 6).

Teaching

I have been teaching Operational Research in undergraduate  degree programmes in Management Engineering, Computer Science, and in a postgraduate degree program in Civil Engineering (including structural optimization and truss topology design optimisation) at the University of Palermo since 2004.

I have taught Game Theory with Engineering Applications at the Department of Engineering Science at Oxford University during my sabbatical  and then also at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College in 2013. The course has been attended by PhD students in Control, Robotics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science. Still in 2013, I have also given a PhD course on Game Theory at the Department of Mathematics, University of Trento.

In 2013 I have taught a course in Operational Research in undergraduate  degree programmes in Production and Logistics, and Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Bozen.

Research interests

My main research interests are in the field of control and optimization and game theory in multi-agent
systems. In particular: consensus; social networks; mean-field games in engineering, economics,
and social sciences; robust control of production/distribution/transportation networks; cooperative and
noncooperative game theory. Feel free to browse my personal website (https://sites.google.com/site/bausod/research-interests) for more details and PhD projects opportunities.
