My PhD thesis is on on friction and wear diagnostics of industrial robots. The work is conducted in a close collaboration with ABB through the VINNOVA excelence center LINK-SIC. The main objective is to develop methods to determine the mechanical condition of the robot using available sensory information. Data-driven as well as model-based methods have been considered for the task.
The work is in the intersection of 3 main areas, namely robotics, tribology and diagnostics. Visit the research page for an overview of the research topics and the publications page for a selected (and full) list of publications.
As a PhD student at Automatic Control, I dedicate 25% of time to teaching. I have been involved in courses in control related areas, such as TSRT06, TSIU61, TSRT19 and TSRT10.
I have also supervised a number of MSc. thesis, visit the teaching page for a full list.
Personal interestsI also enjoy my time in a number of outdoor activities, visit the personal interests section for details.
