Dr Aline Maalouf

I am a control engineering theorist and experimentalist working in the area of quantum control, robust control, optimal control, model predictive control and sensor validation. I am also an electrical engineer specialising in power generation, electrical installation and electrical machines. I banked my research experience from Cambridge University, Oxford University and the University of New South Wales. I have published more than fifty papers in professional journals and conferences. I received awards and recognitions for my research.

I received the PhD degree in control engineering from the University of New South Wale,  Australia in 2011. Also, I hold an Mphil degree in Control Engineering from Cambridge University in UK. I received my BSc. and MSc. in Electrical engineering  from Balamand University.
I was a research associate at the University of New South Wales at the Australian Defence Academy from 2011 till 2014.  I am currently a research associate and a lecturer at the Australian National University.


I am the convener of the ENGN8537 course: Embedded systems and real time digital signal processing.

Quantum control, optimal control, robust control, stochastic control, power control, sensor validation.
