About Me

I was born in Eskilstuna, Sweden, on August 6, 1972. I have a PhD in control engineering from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, 2002. My thesis covers automotive powertrain control and includes dynamic modelling and simulation of automotive powertrains, engine control and nonlinear model-based control design. While finishing my PhD studies I started to work part time for SEMCON. After dissertation, I started full time for SEMCON and worked as consultant at Volvo Cars. 1st of January 2003 I had the opportunity to continue my academic career as Assistant Professor in Mechatronics at the Department of Signals and Systems at Chalmers University of Technology. From 1st of January 2007 I have a position as Senior Lecturer at the department and in December 2008, I became Docent in Mechatronics. From June 2017 I am Professor in Mechatronics. I am currently working with problems related to modelling, control and simulation of dynamical systems, with focus on automotive systems. I am involved in research projects related to hybrid electric vehicles, vehicle dynamics control, automotive active safety and self-driving vehicles. I have 20 years of experience in teaching and I am involved in a lot of different teaching activities at Chalmers University of Technology, both on undergraduate and graduate level. I really enjoy teaching and students appreciate my teaching. I am eager to learn more about learning and teaching and I try to listen to my students, to find their needs.
