Alessandro Papadopoulos, Professor

I am currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), with focus on Systems and Control at MDU, 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


Special Event at ACSOS 2022

The next generation of distributed control systems (nominated for best industry paper award at ISSRE 2019)
LUCAS Day 2014



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.
