Energy Systems Modelling and Optimization
My current research focuses on Gaussian Processes in Control-oriented settings. I am also interested in applying machine learning methods to energy systems.
I am currently involved in the MEMAP Project, a collaboration between MSE, ITR and multiple firms with ties to the energy sector. My goal within the project is to apply machine learning to district energy systems.
Please feel free to contact me if any of the topics above interest you for a Bachelor's or Master's thesis, or if you have a topic of your own.
Motivated students are encouraged to contact me via E-mail if interested in doing their Bachelor's or Master's thesis under my supervision. Please include your CV and credentials with your application.
