Short biography

I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree at the Automatic Control Laboratory at LTH under the supervision of Prof. Anders Rantzer since August 2019. 

I was a graduate research assistant at Automatic Control Laboratory (IfA) at ETH Zurich from December 2016 to January 2019, where I mainly worked on system-theoretic solutions to synchronisation problems arising in power systems consisting in particular of interconnected DC/AC converters subject to disturbances.

I received both my Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Cybernetics Engineering (Technische Kybernetik) from University of Stuttgart in Germany in 2013 and 2016. My university studies were founded on the understanding of dynamical systems and rooted in the mathematical theory of control.

Research interests

My research interests are related to the theory of modelling and control of networked systems with application to control of converters in power systems.

I am always excited and curious about related engineering applications: social and biological applications (such as the study of gene regulatory networks and the differentiation of Mesenchymal stem cells). 


My research topics in power systems evolve around:

  1. Stability of nonlinear systems with symmetry  (Lyapunov and Contraction based analysis ). Collaborators: Prof. Florian DörflerProf. Zhiyong Sun
  2. Primary and secondary control of DC/AC power converters. Collaborators: Prof. Emma Tegling, Prof. Anders Rantzer
  3. Stochastic optimization in power systems (Stochastic Differential Equations, Markov Processes). Collaborators: Prof. Zhiyong Sun.
