Personal Biography

Rodolphe Sepulchre is Professor of engineering at Cambridge University and
a fellow of Sidney Sussex College.
He received the engineering degree (1990) and the PhD  degree
(1994), both  in mathematical engineering, from the Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium.
He was a BAEF fellow in 1994 and  held a postdoctoral position at the University of California, Santa
Barbara from 1994 to 1996. He was a research associate of the FNRS at the Université catholique
de Louvain from 1995 to 1997. Since 1997, he has been professor at  the Université de Liège and still maintains a
part-time appointment in  the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He was
department chair from 2009 to 2011. He held visiting positions at Princeton University (2002-2003)
and the Ecole des Mines de Paris (2009-2010) and part-time positions at the University of Louvain (2000-2011)
and at INRIA Lille Europe (2012-2013).
 His current research interests are in control and coordination problems on nonlinear spaces, optimization on manifolds,
analysis and synthesis of  rhythmic networks, aiming at a better understanding of the role of oscillations in the brain. He co-authored the monographs "Constructive Nonlinear Control" (Springer-Verlag, 1997) and "Optimization on Matrix Manifolds" (Princeton University Press, 2008). He is currently Editor-in-Chief of Systems and Control Letters and has been an Associate Editor for  SIAM Journal of Control and Optimization, the Journal of Nonlinear Science, and  Mathematics for Control, Signals, and Systems. In 2008, he was awarded the IEEE Control Systems Society Antonio Ruberti Young Researcher Prize. He is an IEEE fellow and an IEEE CSS distinguished lecturer since 2010.
