I was born in Lima, Perú, and brought up in Germany and Chile, where I studied electronics engineering at the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María. In 1998, I received the B. Eng. degree, worked then as a part-time lecturer, and in 2000 graduated with Ingeniero Civil Electrónico and M.Sc. degrees. I then moved to Australia to pursue postgraduate studies under supervision of Professor Graham Goodwin. In 2005 I was conferred the Ph.D. degree from The University of Newcastle for my work on quantized moving horizon optimization.
After working as a research associate from 2006 to 2008, I was awarded a five-year Australian Research Fellowship, which allowed me to investigate networked control systems. From 2011 to 2013 I led an Australian Research Council Discovery Project on controller design for power converters and, since 2013, have been leading an ABB research project on modular energy systems. Since March 2015 I have been the Chair of Automatic Control at Paderborn University in Germany.
My research has focused on several issues which arise in networked control systems, quantisation schemes having explicit or implicit feedback, and predictive control formulations. To develop original and high-performance designs, I am interested in combining elements of systems control, signal processing, and telecommunications.
