  • Currently hiring two PhD students (link) and one Postdoc (link) in secure learning and control systems, funded by SSF. Deadlines are in late August / early September.

  • I was among the 20 young researchers in Sweden to be awarded the Future Research Leaders 7 grant by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) in 2020. For a popular description of the project, see the following news article (in Swedish) and check my Projects page.

  • Invited Plenary Speaker at SysTol 2019 (4th International Conference on Control and Fault-Tolerant Systems), Sep 18 - 20, 2019. (slides)

  • I was awarded with a Starting Grant 2019 by the Swedish Research Council for the project ADSec - Analysis and Design of Secure and Resilient Control Systems (2019-2022).
