Dr. S.H. Hossein Nia Kani



Hassan HosseinNia received his PhD degree with honor in electrical engineering specializing in automatic control form University of Extremadura, Spain in 2013. He is graduated form BSc degree in electrical engineering and the MSc degree in control engineering, from Iran in 2006, and 2008, respectively. His main research interests are in motion control and mechatronics design using fractional-order control, hybrid control, model predictive control, and iterative learning control. He has published more than 70 papers in international conferences, ISI journals, special issues, and chapters in book. He was also part of organizing committee in Forth IFAC workshop on fractional differentiation and its application, October 2010. Hassan has been working as lecturer-researcher at university of Extremadura after finishing his PhD until Feb. 2014, when he started to work as an R&D researcher at ABB corporate research in Sweden. There he was involved in enhanced model predictive project in continuation of a project reduced about 1% of electricity in whole Sweden. Since November 2014 he is appointed as an assistant professor at department of precession and microsystem engineering at TU Delft, The Netherlands.
