About

I received the M.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics in June 2010 and the Ph.D. degree in Automatic Control in September 2015, both from Lund University.

My main research interests are in robotics and optimal motion control. I am involved in a project that investigates optimal autonomous maneuvers for vehicles and robots, which is a subproject within the ELLIIT Excellence Center. In addition, research within the European Spallation Source (ESS) is performed, targeting systems for temperature control.
