Summary

 

Summary

I am a Lecturer of Control and Multi-Agent Systems at the department of Aeronautics, Imperial College London. 

My research interests span a variety of topics in nonlinear control theory, including, for instance, differential games, robust control and output feedback. I have a particular interest in differential games and distributed control, and their application to multi-agent systems and robotics. 

I was born in Bergen, Norway. I received the M.Eng degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Imperial College London, UK, in 2010. In 2014 I completed my Ph.D. degree with the Control and Power research group at the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London, where I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate from 2014-2016. From 2016-2017, I was a Research Fellow at the Department of Aeronautics, Imperial College London, where I have been a Lecturer since 2017. 


Potential PhD students


I am always looking for exceptional PhD students to work on advanced topics in nonlinear control. Prospective students are welcome to contact me by email, clearly and concisely providing
1) Evidence of a strong background in systems and control 
2) Evidence of excellence in an MEng/MSc degree.
3) A list of courses taken and achieved grades related to systems and control. 

Due to the large volume of emails received, only emails in which the above information is provided will get a response. Emails with insufficient evidence of 1. and 2. will not be acknowledge and should be considered rejected. 

TEACHING

I am a lecturer of the courses "Circuits, Signals and Systems" (AE2-205) and "Numerical Analysis"  (AE2-202), which are two of the core modules for second year Aeronautics students at Imperial College. 

I am the lecturer of the course "Control Theory" (AEM-ADV20), which is a module of the MSc course in Advanced Computational Methods in Aeronautics. 

I am also a 1st, 2nd and 3rd year personal tutor and supervisor of undergraduate and MSc projects.
