Anas Fattouh, Senior Lecturer

I currently hold the position of Senior Lecturer and Researcher at Mälardalen University, where I have amassed over 20 years of experience in academia and research. My educational background includes a Diploma of Engineering in Automatic Control and Industrial Electronics, awarded by Aleppo University in 1992. Subsequently, I completed a DEA degree and a Ph.D. degree in Automatic Control from the Automatic Laboratory of Grenoble, INPG, France in 1997 and 2000, respectively. Throughout my career, I have been deeply involved in the field of control systems and related topics, with a recent focus on industrial AI systems and smart automation.
