Titolo

Some results on optimal control applied to epidemics

Abstract

In this talk, I will present an overview of my research activities in the field of systems and optimal control theory and applications. Optimal control theory represents the suitable framework to face many problems of resources allocation in different fields, for example biomedical, telecommunications, mechanics, material sciences, aerospace and image analysis. It allows the determination of the best control strategy, taking into account different constraints in the control and/or in the state. Among my research activities, I will present some results about the optimal control problems with state dependent switching cost index; applications in the epidemic modeling and control theory will be discussed. Some results on singular solutions will be outlined and applied to a SIR model. Moreover, a recently proposed model on the human immunodeficiency virus will be presented, showing its properties and proposing an LQ control design. Finally, some applications of optimal control theory in different fields will be shown. An overview of on-going research activities and future developments will conclude the talk.

Biosketch

Daniela Iacoviello has been Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer, Control, and Management Engineering “Antonio Ruberti” (DIAG) of the University of Rome “La Sapienza” from 2002. She received the Laurea Degree in Mathematics in 1992 and the PhD degree in Systems Engineering in 1998, after a two - years fellowship (1992-1994) at the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica Francesco Severi.
From 2002 to 2014 she taught Automatic control and since 2014 she has been teaching Optimal Control, for the Master in Control Engineering, and Control in biological systems, for the Master in Biomedical Engineering.
Since 2013 she has been Associate Editor of the Journal Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering: Imaging and Visualization (Taylor and Francis).
In April 2018 she received the "Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale" (ASN) for Associate Professor in the scientific sector ING-INF/04-Automatica.
She is author of more than 90 papers and book chapters. She has participated, as Principal Investigator or Investigator, to Ateneo Research Projects, to PRIN, ASI and SELEX projects.
Her main research interests are in the optimal control theory and applications, with specific interests in epidemic modeling and control, signal analysis (in particular, EEG signal analysis), image analysis and classification (biomedical and material sciences images), biomechanical modeling and control.
