My name is Laurent Lessard, and I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley, working with Andrew Packard and Kameshwar Poolla. My research interests include decentralized control, optimization, and finding computationally tractable approaches for complex engineering applications. Prior to coming to Berkeley, I received the BASc degree in Engineering Science from the University of Toronto, and I received the Ph.D. degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University, advised by Sanjay Lall and co-advised by Matthew West. I was also a postdoc for one year at Lund University, where I worked with Anders Rantzer.
I am on the academic job market!
