About me

I am a research engineer at the Division of Decision and Control Systems at KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

My current research focuses on developing machine-learning models for transformer thermal modelling. Machine learning algorithms can enable improved transformer operation and provide deeper insights into heat distribution within power components. This knowledge can benefit power system management and inform future component design, ultimately leading to enhanced efficiency and reliability in the power grid.

I received my bachelor's degree with honours from Chinhoyi University of Technology in Zimbabwe. I then pursued my Master's in Computer and Electronic Engineering from North-West University in South Africa. My master's thesis focused on interpretable speaker diarisation for child natural language environments.

During my time at North-West University, I also conducted research on leveraging open-source technology to build reproducible robots.
