Alessandro Papadopoulos, Associate Professor, Docent

I am currently an Associate Professor (Docent) in Computer Science, Systems and Control at MDH, and I work in the area of complex real-time embedded systems.

I was a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria at the Politecnico di Milano. Before, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Automatic Control at the Lund University. I was also a member of Lund Center for Control of Complex Engineering Systems (LCCC).

I was a PhD Fellow in the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione at Politecnico di Milano and my main research interest were on model simplification techniques for continuous and discontinuous systems.

Keywords: Control Theory, Feedback Computing, Fog Computing, Cloud Computing, Real-time and embedded systems



My research topics include the application of control theory to the design and implementation of computing systems, especially in the context of real-time and cloud computing systems. In addition, I am also interested in modeling and control of interconnected systems in presence of uncertainty.

I am particularly interested in autonomic and self-adaptive systems, in different areas of computer science and software engineering.

I am currently involved in the Future factories in the cloud project, investigating novel feedback-based methodologies for resource allocation in cloud systems, and virtualization technologies.

I am involved in the project EU Horizon 2020™ Fog Computing for Robotics and Industrial Automation (FORA) (EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 764785).
