Dr. Walter Lucia
I am currently an Associate Professor at the Concordia Institute for Information Systems Engineering (CIISE), Concordia University, Canada.
I received an M.Sc. in automation engineering (2011) and a Ph.D. in Systems and Computer Engineering (2015) from the University of Calabria, Italy. In 2013, I was a visiting research scholar in the ECE Department at Northeastern University (USA), and in 2015, I was a visiting postdoctoral researcher in the ECE Department at Carnegie Mellon University (USA). In 2016, I joined Concordia University as a tenure-track Assistant Professor. In 2021, I have been promoted to the rank of Associate Professor with tenure.
My current research interests include control of unmanned vehicles, predictive control, fault-tolerant control, and secure and resilient control of cyber-physical systems. I am an Associate Editor for the Control System Society - Conference Editorial Board, IEEE Systems Journal and Springer Journal of Control, Automation and Electrical Systems. I am serving as Guest (special issue) editor for IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering. Finally, I am the Chair of the IEEE Montreal Chapters of Systems, Man and Cybernetics, and IEEE Control Systems.
