postgraduate university statement of purpose

I am planning to apply to ETH Zurich’s doctoral program in pursuit of a career in further academic research in the field of “Energy” and specifically in electrical power systems. This interest was confirmed by my research work as a graduate student at the American University of Beirut (AUB). During that time, my research work included several projects each tackling a unique electrical engineering-related task. These research experiences also led me to discover that I enjoy research work, especially in fields that combine research with simulations, control, and mathematical optimization techniques. My avid interest in the distribution network-related optimization problems led me to explore several optimization techniques including genetic algorithm, different convex optimization techniques, such as lagrangian, normal equations, gradient descent, and artificial neural networks, as well as the deterministic search space technique “dynamic programming.”
