My name is Laurent Lessard, and I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley, working with Andrew Packard. I was also supported by Kameshwar Poolla last year. My research interests include decentralized control, robust control, large-scale optimization, and finding computationally tractable approaches for managing complex engineered systems. Prior to coming to Berkeley, I received the BASc degree in Engineering Science from the University of Toronto, and I received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University, advised by Sanjay Lall and co-advised by Matthew West. I was also an LCCC postdoc for one year at Lund University, where I worked with Anders Rantzer. Laurent Lessard
