His main research interests are in the area of nonlinear circuits and systems, with emphasis on:
  • Circuit Simulation
  • Pulse coders optimization
  • Modelling of biological neurons for computational neuroscience applications
  • Identification of nonlinear dynamical systems
  • Analysis, Synchronization and Control of Complex Networks
  • Smooth, Hybrid and Piecewise-smooth (continuous and discrete time) dynamical systems
  • Bifurcations of smooth and non-smooth systems
  • Piecewise-linear (PWL) approximation techniques of n-variate functions for engineering applications (e.g., emulation of nonlinear dynamical systems, nonlinear control systems)
  • Analysis and design of algorithms for early-vision image processing suitable for the implementation on DSP boards
  • Information processing (synthesis of cellular nonlinear networks for parallel nonlinear information processing, classification of chaotic sequences, approximation of bivariate functions based on the properties of the Singular Value Decomposition)
