uppsalaSince February 2021 I am a full professor for control at Technische Universität Berlin, Germany.

I originally studied at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany, and graduated in Systemtechnik und technische Kybernetik (Systems engineering and technical cybernetic, close to control engineering) in October 2008 with the title „Diplom Ingenieur“, which is equivalent to a Master of Science.

During my studies, as an undergraduate student, I spent one semester in 2007 at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina in Florianópolis, Brazil, to write my „Studienarbeit“ (equivalent to bachelor thesis). Afterwards I did an internship at Daimler in Sindelfingen / Böblingen, Germany, for six months.

I finished my undergraduate studies writing my „Diplomarbeit“ (equivalent to master’s thesis) at the Hamilton Institute of the National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUIM) in Maynooth, Ireland.

I stayed on in Maynooth for three and a half more years to work on my PhD and then spent two years in Australia working at the University of Newcastle.

In February 2014 I moved to Uppsala and work at the Uppsala University, where I stayed until July 2019.

From August 2019 to January 2021 I was at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany and lead the Department of Autonomous Systems in Automation.

My research interests include: energy harvesting in wireless networks, wireless energy transfer, optimal energy allocation in networked systems, sclability of dynamical systems, control theory and its applications and port-Hamiltonian systems.
