Kyriakos G. Vamvoudakis, Ph.D.
Dept. of Electrical and Computer Eng.,
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.
Dr. Vamvoudakis received the Best Paper Award at the 2010 Army Science Conference with the citation “Award-Winning Research Keeps Soldiers Safe, Effective”.
