Christian received his Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in mechanical engineering  from Aalborg University and is currently a PhD student in a collaboration between Aalborg University and Grundfos. Christian has previously studied a range of different topic; his studies on multi-function pump designs kick-started his current field of study on Model Free Control of HVAC systems, which he also did his Master’s thesis on.

Christian is working with CBE to generally exchange and obtain knowledge of how HVAC systems are operated in the U.S. and Europe. He is working on testing his multi-agent reinforcement learning based control algorithm, in a simulation environment that includes dynamic prices, user behavior, verified thermodynamic and real-world weather data.
