About me

PhD student in automatic control since 2021. Part of WASP (Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program). MSc in Engineering Physics, graduated in 2021 with master's thesis on machine learning methods for interpreting EEG signals. Currently, I work with the application of graph search methods to optimal control of positive systems. My research also includes nonlinear dynamical models of network synchronization, with applications to opinion dynamics.

Research and Publications


Research interests include optimal control, control of large-scale networks and its application to social networks, opinion modeling and EEG signal processing.
