I participated as a lecturer to the online Winter School on "Spectral Methods for Complex Systems" (January 2019) where I give an interlocutory talk (videos and slides are available) about spectral analysis in finite and infinite dimensional dynamical systems.
I recently worked on two papers on Thermostatic Controlled Loads (TCLs), showing effects of the disorder (meaning non identical TCLs) and the effect of a realistic Mean Field control. Basically, both effects greatly improve the resilience of ensemble of TCLs, making them more suitable for Demand Response.

For another project on synchronization I work on the effect of delay in the Kuramoto model:
