Alessandro Papadopoulos, Assistant Professor

I am currently an Assistant Professor at MDH, 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: Feedback Computing, Cloud Computing, Real-time and embedded systems, Control Theory


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 intereste 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 also involved SLA-IoT: Ensuring Quality of Service through Modeling of Service-level Agreements in Industrial IoT, investigating SLA models and management techniques for industrial IoT applications. This project is funded by the Software Center.
