Background and activities

I hold a Master's degree in Engineering Cybernetics from NTNU. The focus of my thesis was derivative-free model-based trust-region optimization. The goal was to transform the derivative-free method in to a hybrid method by taking advantage of the available gradients. It is a common scenario that simulators will provide you with some, but not all, gradients.

Fall 2019, I started as a PhD fellow at the Department of Engineering Cybernetics, NTNU. I am now a part of a program named Better Resource Utilization in the 21 Century (BRU21). This program focuses on increasing the effiency and productivity of the petroleum industry.

My working title is Economic Model Predictive Control Across Different Time-Scales. I want to explore how one can take into consideration both long-term and short-term goals while doing optimization.

The goal is to deliver the thesis by Fall 2022.
