His projects always start in some practical problem that arouses his interest. And they always end up with him wanting to see how the solution actually works. The step to application comes naturally to Alexander Medvedev, Professor of Control Engineering at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University. Rarely does he need to look for problems to study and solve, they are always there. One that affects us all right now is Covid-19 and he is part of the Crush Covid project which is a collaboration between Uppsala University and the Uppsala Region.

“If you want to overcome an epidemic, you have to use automatic control,” says Alexander in this interview.

Medical challenges are particularly interesting to Alexander and one of his goals is to be able to contribute to a solution that has a major impact.
