Dario Paccagnan is now an Assistant Professor (UK Lecturer) and a member of the Computational Optimization Group in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, UK.
Previously, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Control, Dynamical System, and Computations, University California Santa Barbara hosted by Prof. Francesco Bullo and Prof. Jason Marden. He received a PhD in optimization and control from ETH Zurich under the guidance of Prof. John Lygeros. He was awarded a B.Sc. and two M.Sc. degrees from the University of Padova , and the Technical University of Denmark under the T.I.M.E. double degree program. Dario was recognized with the ETH medal for his doctoral work, the SNSF Early Postdoc Mobility Fellowship, and the SNSF Doc Mobility Fellowship.
He is interested in the modeling, analysis and control of multi-agent systems where self-interested agents take autonomous decisions. He leverages theoretical models and real world case studies to shed light on the societal impact of self-interested decision making. Applications include future mobility and electricity markets.
