About Us

Driven by societal challenges, the goal of the Zardini Lab at MIT is to develop efficient computational tools and algorithmic approaches to formulate and solve complex, interconnected system design and autonomous decision-making problems. Applications feature society-critical problems in mobility, logistics, autonomy, automotive, aerospace, energy, and complex systems in general. The lab, comprised of researchers equipped with strong mathematical skills and diverse engineering backrounds, solves such problems by employing and enhancing techniques from optimization, control theory, game theory, domain theory, and applied category theory.
