About Me

Gerwin Hoogsteen received the PhD degree from the University of Twente in 2017 with his thesis “ A Cyber-Physical Systems Perspective on Decentralized Energy Management”. He is currently employed as permanent researcher in the field of smart grids within the Computer Architecture for Embedded Systems chair, with a focus on applying theoretical research in field-tests. His research interest is in energy management for smart grids, and in particular where it concerns multi-disciplinary research and cyber-physical systems. Current research directions include the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence in smart grids, distributed coordination, and cyber-security of smart grids. Hoogsteen is the founder and maintainer of the DEMKit and ALPG software.
