Dr. Walter Lucia
I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Concordia Institute
for Information Systems Engineering, 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, under the supervision of Professor
Giuseppe Franze'. In 2013, I was a visiting research
scholar in the ECE Department at Northeastern University
(USA), where I worked with Professor
Mario Sznaier. In 2015, I was visiting postdoctoral
researcher in the ECE Department at Carnegie Mellon University
(USA), where I collaborated with Professor
Bruno Sinopoli. My current research interests include
control of unmanned vehicles, switching systems, fault-tolerant
control, model predictive control, and resilient control of
cyber-physical systems. Since July 2017, I am the Chair of the
IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society, Montreal Chapter
