Background and activities

I am an electric power engineer, and especially interested in renewable energy technologies. I received a BSc degree in Electrical Engineering from Hawassa University - Ethiopia in 2011, and an MSc degree in Electric Power Engineering from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in 2015. I worked on my MSc thesis (Power Converters as Smart Instruments and Actuators in a Smarter Grid) under the supervision of Ole-Morten Midtgård (Professor). I am currently working towards my Ph.D. degree in 'Digital Solar Electricity: The Role of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Energy Optimization' under the supervision of Steve Völler (Associate Professor) and Ole-Morten Midtgård (Professor).

Research Interests:
