Maryam Kamgarpour, head of the Systems Control and Multiagent Optimization Research lab (SYCAMORE) in the School of Engineering, has been named winner of the European Control Award for 2024 by the European Control Association.

The European Control Award (ECA), sponsored by the European Control Association (EUCA), aims to recognize outstanding contributions by a young researcher in the area of systems and control. This year it has been awarded to School of Engineering (STI) professor Maryam Kamgarpour, whose research in the SYCAMORE lab focuses on optimization, learning, multi-agent systems, and control. This includes safe learning, stochastic control (safety, reachability); distributed control; and game theory (learning equilibria and mechanism design).

Born in Iran, Kamgarpour moved to Canada at the age of 15, obtaining a Bachelor of Applied Science from the University of Waterloo. Her studies took her to the United States, where she completed a PhD in engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. She joined EPFL in the fall of 2021 as a tenure-track assistant professor in STI's Institute of Mechanical Engineering. She will receive her ECA award, which comes with EUR 3,000, at the European Control Conference ECC 2024 in Stockholm, Sweden, in June.
