Emma Tegling

Senior lecturer

Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) at the Department of Automatic Control at Lund University with a WASP (Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program) professorship. I joined the department in January 2021. 

I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering in 2019, and my M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees, both in Engineering Physics, in 2013 and 2011, all from KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Between 2019-2020, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

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). Prior to my doctoral studies, I was a business analyst at Ericsson. 

My research interests are within analysis and control of large-scale networked systems and much of my work has focused on describing fundamental limitations of distributed control. I have a particular interest for control challenges in distributed electric power networks, as well as social and epidemiological networks.
