I am professor in control engineering. My research area is industrial processes and operational processes related to them. My research is based on control theory and application of it in my research area. The methods I apply are:
- modelling of dynamic processes, more specifically, creating mathematical models on the basis of first principles and using measurement knowledge,
- the methods of controltheory for estimating the states and parameters of controlled processes using measurement data from processes, and
- methods of control and optimization theories for designing and implementing control solutions using measurement data and state estimates.
I am the head of the Automation and Mechanical Engineering Unit.
