Reseach Interests

Dr. Vamvoudakis' research is multi-disciplinary and draws from the areas of control theory, game theory, renewable energy (smart grid) and computational intelligence. Interactions between self-interested agents along with nature-inspired approaches, are used to design and develop control system algorithms with guaranteed performance and stability where traditional techniques are unable to provide any solutions. His current research focus is game theory based network security and multi-agent optimization with applications to cyber-physical systems.
