Prof. Langbort's research interests lie in the area of distributed decision and control theory and its applications to large-scale infrastructures, such as air traffic management systems and multi-vehicle cooperative missions.

Most recently, he has been focusing on the problem of co-design of controllers and information structure, robustness issues in distributed algorithms and control design, and modular design, which preserves the privacy of the different subsystems while constructing a provably efficient controller. These approaches make use of tools from convex optimization and robust control theory, combined with concepts from economics and computer science, such as organization efficiency and competitive analysis.
