About the Author

Prof. Roskilly has taught marine control at undergraduate and postgraduate level for more than 20 years. He has extensive research experience and a strong publication track record in the modeling and control of complex systems. He is a member of the Technical Committee for Marine Systems, International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC), a Fellow of the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and Editor of the IMarEST Journal of Marine Engineering and Technology.

Dr. Mikalsen has supported the delivery of on-campus and distance learning courses in marine dynamics and control for more than 6 years, including teaching the use of software tools for simulation and analysis of dynamic systems and development of teaching material for these courses. In addition to his first degree in Marine Engineering he has a PhD in modelling and simulation of thermal power systems.
