Research Interest

General research interests:

  • Optimal control
  • Decentralized control
  • Reinforcement learning
  • (Mixed-integer) linear programming

 

Research project:

Many communication network problems can be formulated as an optimization task, e.g., optimal routing, virtual network embedding, video streaming, etc.  This fact enables the usage of control methods in the communication domain. Furthermore, reinforcement learning algorithms can be employed to control large networks without an analytical model of the system.

As part of the MAKI research group, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), we aim to improve the adaptation mechanisms of future communication systems using control and learning methods. We also investigate how these approaches can be transferred to the optimization of power networks and how analogous both domains are.
