Ivo is a doctoral student supervised by Michael Šebek since September 2012. He got his Ing. (MSc) degree at Brno University of Technology in 2012 for his work on sensorless control of electric motors supervised by Pavel Václavek. Ivo's doctoral research is focused on control theory for distributed and networked systems.

Mainly he does research in a scaling in distributed control, especially in vehicular platoons. He tries to find the limitations imposed by the graph topology, regardless of what model of the agent is used.
