Johan Löfberg

Background:

After graduating in 2003 on Minimax Approaches to Robust Model Predictive Control, and spending three years as a post-doc at the Automatic Control laboratory at ETH, Zurich, I am currently back in Linköping as a research associate in the control group. In 2011, I was appointed Docent.

Research

My research interest lies in the border between control theory and optimization. I was earlier heavily focused on applications of optimization methods in model predictive control, but now prefer a slightly broader perspective. A common factor in most of my work is the development of control-oriented optimization-based algorithms, leading to the constant evolution of a MATLAB based modelling language, called YALMIP.
