Personal profile

Research profile

Currently, Lizan is working as a Doctoral Candidate in the Control Systems Group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). She is working on the project called System Identification in Dynamic Networks (SYSDYNET), under supervision of Full Professor Paul Van den Hof. The topic of her part of the research concerns the representation of dynamic networks.

The first part of her research is on the connection between state-space representations and module representations of dynamic networks. The second part of her research is on physical networks and the identification thereof.


To quote Albert Einstein: 'In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.'

Academic background

Lizan Kivits received her BSc degree in Electrical Engineering in 2014 and her MSc degree in Systems and Control (with great appreciation) in 2017, both at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), the Netherlands. Her master thesis was entitled “Control Relevant Model Reduction for Disturbance Decoupling” and was supervised by Full Professor Siep Weiland.
