Alberto De Marchi M.Sc.


I am a Doctoral Student under the supervision of Prof. Matthias Gerdts. I have been working as a Research Assistant within the Engineering Mathematics group since May 2017.

I am interested in numerical methods and algorithms for optimal control and model-predictive control. My current research focuses on proximal methods for constrained nonsmooth optimization. Also, I am curious about how people came to be curious.
