Tillmann Mühlpfordt, research scientist at the Institute for Automation and Applied Informatics (IAI) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany.

I received my B.Sc/M.Sc in systems engineering and cybernetics from the Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg, Germany. My master thesis—supervised by Rolf Findeisen—covered model predictive control subject to stochastic parametric uncertainties. Since July 2015 I am a research scientist at KIT, supervised by Timm Faulwasser and Veit Hagenmeyer. I study how to optimize power systems under uncertainty, leveraging polynomial chaos theory. Broadly speaking, I am interested in optimization under uncertainty, numerical optimization, uncertainty quantification, and the Julia programming language.

I was lucky enough to visit The University of Melbourne, MIT, Los Alamos National Lab, and EPFL.
