Biography

Fabio Pasqualetti is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He completed a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 2012, a Laurea Magistrale degree (M.S. equivalent) in Automation Engineering at the University of Pisa, Italy, in 2007, and a Laurea degree (B.S. equivalent) in Computer Engineering at the University of Pisa, Italy, in 2004. For his Ph.D. and postdoctoral studies he worked on multi-agent and networked problems, including cooperative estimation and control over networks, cyber-physical security, and distributed optimization.

Degrees

  • Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Santa Barbara, 2012
  • M.S. Automation Engineering, University of Pisa, Italy, 2007
  • B.S. Computer Engineering, University of Pisa, Italy, 2004

Research Areas

The main research interests of Fabio Pasqualetti are in the area of multi-agent, large-scale, and networked systems, such as power grids, social networks, and cooperative robotic systems. His research objectives are to establish scientific foundations for dependable networked systems, and to design networked systems that are robust, resilient and survivable against accidental failures and attacks. His technical approach relies on tools from Control Theory, Graph Theory, Distributed Computing, and Probability. A second line of interest is in mobile robotics, and specifically in the design of coordination and surveillance strategies for teams of autonomous robots. For this part, his technical approach relies on tools from Robotics, Computational Geometry, and Combinatorics.
