Zhiyu He

ETH Zürich
Graduated in 2022

Shanghai Jiao Tong University

I am a now Ph.D. student at the Max Plank ETH Center for Learning Systems and work with Prof. Florian Dörfler at the Automatic Control Laboratory (IfA) at ETH Zürich and Dr. Michael Mühlebach at the Max Plank Institute for Intelligent Systems. I received my B.Eng. degree (with honors) and M.S. degree in Control Science and Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China, in 2019 and 2022, respectively. During my master’s studies, I was supervised by Prof. Xinping Guan and Prof. Jianping He. From July to October 2021, I was a visiting student at IfA, ETH Zürich. [CV] [New Homepage]

My research interests lie in distributed optimization, learning, and control of network systems.
