Short presentation

Assistant professor in power electronics for synchronous machines at the department of electrical engineering.

I did my PhD in elecrtical systems for marine current power and the current research focus is electrical systems for ocean based energy conversion.

I have a PhD in Engineering Physics with a specialization in Electricity, from Uppsala University. I want to continue to work in the field of Power Electronics applied to renewable energy.

I have always been a driven person and motivated by what I find interesting and of importance. I did my masters thesis in radiation therapy, and then I started working at Scania with testing and developing electrical systems for, among others, their hybrid buses. During my time in Scania I realized that I wanted to work with more advanced elecrical systems for energy systems. Doing a PhD in electricity applied to renewable energy was a logical step in that direction.

My main interests are developing, designing and testing power electronics related devices for use in the electric grid. During my PhD studies I have worked with the electrical system for an in-stream turbine. I was working with a grid connected system and an off-grid system aimed for evaluating the performance of the turbine. The work included electrical simulations and on-site testing with the experimental setup. I want to use the knowledge and abilities I gained from my engineering studies at Upsala University. My own progress is important to me and that my job gives me the opportunity to increase my knowledge about power engineering
