Personal profile


I received the M.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics in June 2010 and the Ph.D. degree in Automatic Control in September 2015, both from Lund University. I was appointed Docent at Linköping University in 2020.

My research interests are in autonomy of robots and vehicles. More specifically, I do research within motion planning and optimal motion control for both robot systems and ground vehicles. I am involved in the ELLIIT Strategic Research Area.
