My name is Robin T. Bye and I am an associate professor at the Ålesund University College in Norway. Apart from teaching classes in signals, systems, and control, I am the co-supervisor of one PhD student and also supervise several bachelor students on their thesis topics. In addition, I do research in areas such as computational modelling and simulation of human movements as well as dynamic resource allocation.

My background is from electrical engineering, in which I hold a BE, MEngSc, and a PhD from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Whilst my main focus has been on systems and control, I have also emphasised computer engineering during my education. In fact, I believe that many of tomorrow’s complex and nonlinear control problems will not be solvable with classical control methods but will require a fusion of modern control theory, the algorithmical perspective of artificial intelligence (AI), and differential geometry.

Besides educational and research duties, I enjoy a multitude of leisure activities such as playing football and chess, skiing, scuba diving, snorkelling, surfing, reading, photography, music and playing the guitar, travelling, film-making, and blogging. I am also a proponent of open-source software, and spend much time acquiring knowledge about Linux as well as technology in general.
