Brief bio:

I was born in Indonesia but spent my childhood and early teen years split between Indonesia and Australia. I hold  a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia, a master's degree in engineering mathematics from the University of Twente, the Netherlands, and a PhD degree in engineering and information science from the Australian National University (ANU). After receiving my PhD degree in 2007, I was a Research Fellow in the Department of Engineering, ANU, in 2007-2008, and then an ARC APD Fellow from 2009-2011. I joined the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications at UNSW in 2012 as a Senior Lecturer.

If you are interested in doing master's by research or PhD research with me in my areas of interest (see the section on "My Research Activities" below), please read the information provided in the information on graduate studies section below.

Current group members:

  • Mr Muhammad Ali (PhD student)
  • Ms Jiayin Chen (PhD student)
  • Mr Jiacheng Li (PhD student)

Former group members:

  • Dr Zhan Shi (PhD and postdoc)
  • Dr Onvaree Techakesari (postdoc)

Research scholarship opportunities for domestic students: https://research.unsw.edu.au/domestic-research-scholarships

Research scholarship opportunities for international students: https://research.unsw.edu.au/international-research-scholarships

For prospective students from China, Pakistan and Chile, there are also joint research scholarships from UNSW and their home countries:  https://research.unsw.edu.au/unsw-home-country-joint-scholarships

Note that there are only a limited number of scholarships available (some extremely competitive), so a strong academic performance and track record is necessary to be competitive in your application.
 


My Qualifications

  • PhD, Engineering and Information Science, The Australian National University, 2007
  • MSc, Engineering Mathematics, University of Twente (The Netherlands)
  • Sarjana Teknik (ST, equivalent to a bachelor of engineering), Electrical Engineering, Institut Teknologi Bandung (Indonesia)

My Research Activities

My research lies at the intersection of control engineering and systems and control theory with the following disciplines:

  • Quantum physics (in particular, quantum optics) 
  • Energy systems  (microgrids and distributed energy generation)

Topics that are of current interest and I have worked on in the past include:

  • Classical and quantum stochastic systems
  • Quantum feedback control
  • Quantum system identification and parameter estimation
  • Linear quantum systems theory and their applications
  • Model reduction theory
  • Applications of control theory to renewable energy systems 
  • Decentralised and distributed control of renewable energy systems

I am a Senior Member of the IEEE and was Chair of the organising committee for the 10th PRACQSYS (Principles and Applications of Control in Quantum Systems) international workshop that was held at UNSW in July 2015.

I co-authored (with Naoki Yamamoto of Keio University) the Springer research monograph Linear Dynamical Quantum Systems: Analysis, Synthesis and Control in Springer's Communications and Control Engineering series.
