This fall, alum Marcos Vasconcelos (ECE Ph.D. 2016) will join the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Florida State University as a tenure-track assistant professor. At Maryland, Vasconcelos was a student of Professor Nuno Martins (ECE/ISR).

Since early 2021 Vasconcelos has been a research assistant professor with the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative at Virginia Tech’s Arlington, Va., research center. From 2016 to 2020 he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Southern California, working with Prof. Urbashi Mitra.

His research interests are in network systems, particularly cyber-physical systems; game theory; and distributed estimation, control and optimization. Currently, Vasconcelos works on team decision problems where multiple agents, often with limited communication, sensing, and computational power, collaborate to perform a given task. He designs optimal strategies in team decision problems motivated by applications in cyber-physical and biological systems.
