Sergio Pequito

PostDoc, ESE '17 - Assistant Professor, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Sérgio Pequito is a postdoctoral researcher at University of Pennsylvania. He obtained  his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and Instituto Superior Técnico, through  the CMU-Portugal program. Furthermore, he received his BSc and MSc in Applied  Mathematics from the Instituto Superior Técnico.   Pequito’s  research  consists  in understanding the global qualitative behavior of large scale systems from their structural or parametric  descriptions and provide a  rigorous framework for  the  design, analysis, optimization  and  control of large scale   (real-world) systems. Pequito was awarded with the best student  paper  finalist  in  the  Conference  on  Decision  and  Control 2009, the  ECE Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award at Carnegie Mellon University, and the Carnegie Mellon Graduate Teaching  Award  (university-wide)  honorable mention, both in 2012.
