I am especially interested in solving control systems problems using methods of different fields such as optimization and machine learning. The following three topics are main research subjects.
- Applications of optimization theory to control systems theory: We study what control systems problems can be solved using Riemannian optimization, proximal algorithm, submodular optimization, and so on.
- Applications of control systems theory to optimization theory: We study what optimization problems can be efficiently solved using control systems theories such as hybrid systems, passivity, and so on.
- Data-driven modeling for controlling systems: We study efficient modeling methods for controlling systems from time series data using optimization, machine learning, numerical analysis, and so on.
