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 mathematical optimization, optimal control and model-predictive control.

🤔 Also, I am curious about how people came to be curious.
