Focused on control and security of networked and cyberphysical systems


Andrew Clark’s research interests are in control, security, and resilience of cyberphysical systems (CPS) and complex networks. He is interested in introducing new game- and control-theoretic models that describe the impact of cyber attacks and other disturbances on physical infrastructures. Based on these models, Prof. Clark develops novel methods using techniques from machine learning, control theory, game theory, optimization, and systems security to ensure safety and availability of CPS in uncertain and adversarial environments. He is especially interested in computationally scalable and verifiable algorithms that are applicable to real-world systems such as power grids and autonomous vehicles.


Andrew Clark is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Systems Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to joining WashU, he was an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He received the BSE degree in electrical engineering and the MS degree in mathematics from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor in 2007 and 2008, respectively. He received the PhD degree in electrical engineering from the Network Security Lab (NSL), Department of Electrical Engineering, at the University of Washington - Seattle in 2014. He is author or co-author of the IEEE/IFIP William C. Carter award-winning paper (2010), the WiOpt Best Paper (2012), the WiOpt Student Best Paper (2014), and the GameSec Outstanding Paper (2018), and was a finalist for the IEEE CDC 2012 Best Student Paper Award and the ACM/ICCPS Best Paper Award (2016, 2018, 2020). He received an NSF CAREER award in 2020 and an AFOSR YIP award in 2022.
