Background and activities
PhD project: Marine multi-agent control systems. Main supervisor: prof. Kristin Y. Pettersen. Co-supervisors: prof. Henk Nijmeijer and prof. Asgeir Sørensen
I obtained both my BsC and MsC degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Eindhoven Univeristy of Technology, where I graduated in the Dynamics and Control group of prof. Henk Nijmeijer. My master thesis was entitled 'Signal-Based Observer Design for Estimation of the Wave Encounter Frequency', the project was supervised by prof. Henk Nijmeijer and prof. Thor Inge Fossen had an advising role.
I started my PhD at AMOS in August 2013. Where I will focus on cooperative control of multiple underactuated autonomous surface vessels and/or underwater vehicles. The goal is to develop Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC) systems for autonomous systems and to derive control strategies that allow cooperative behavior of multiple vehicles. The project is supervised by prof. Kristin Ytterstad Pettersen, and co-supervised by prof. Henk Nijmeijer and prof. Asgeir Sørensen.
