About me

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society at MIT, hosted by prof. Ali Jadbabaie and prof. Munther Dahleh. In January 2021, I will join the Department of Automatic Control at Lund University as a Senior Lecturer with a WASP (Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program) professorship. 

I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees, both in Engineering Physics, in 2011 and 2013, and my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering in 2019, all from KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Before re-joining KTH for my doctoral studies in 2014, I was a business analyst with the telecom company Ericsson.

My doctoral studies at KTH were under the supervision of Henrik Sandberg and Karl H. Johansson. I have also spent time as a research visitor at Caltech (2011), the Johns Hopkins University (2013) and University of California at Santa Barbara (2015), where I have worked with Dennice Gayme and Bassam Bamieh.

My research interests are within analysis and control of large-scale networked systems and my thesis work focused on describing fundamental limitations of distributed control. I have a particular interest for control challenges in highly distributed electric power networks, and lately related to the COVID 19 pandemic.

In June 2019, I was awarded the International Postdoc Grant from the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) for my project Fundamental mechanisms for scalable control of large networks, which I am currently carrying out at MIT. 

Here is my CV (updated February 2020).
