    Melanie Zeilinger has taken up the Eva-Mayr-Stihl professorship for Intelligent Networks at the Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering (INATECH) at the University of Freiburg. Zeilinger’s research focuses on safe algorithms for autonomous systems that learn and interact to improve their performance. Energy systems, for example, can save resources by learning the profile of their individual user, adapting to it and also coordinating consumption with other systems via the network in order to optimally balance fluctuations. Zeilinger will address both fundamental questions and their translation into practice at INATECH.

    Zeilinger studied engineering cybernetics at the University of Stuttgart and received her doctorate in electrical engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich, Switzerland in 2011. From 2011 to 2012 she was a postdoctoral fellow at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland. She then worked as a postdoctoral fellow through a Marie Curie Fellowship at the University of California in Berkeley in the US and at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen. Most recently, she was assistant professor at the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control at ETH Zurich from 2015. Zeilinger was awarded the ETH Medal for her doctoral thesis. She was also awarded an SNF Professorship Grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation to promote scientific research.
