Estimation and Control: Hidden Technologies in an Uncertain World

March 11, 2005




 Dr. Tryphon Georgiou is the Vincentine Hermes-Luh Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Minnesota, where he is currently co-director of the Control Science and Dynamical Systems Center together with Gary Balas. He has been a Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University since 1989. In 1994 he was the recipient of a Best Instructor Award by the Institute of Technology Student Board at the University of Minnesota. He has also had visiting positions at the National Technical University of Athens (Spring 1996 & Fall 2004), Medtronic in Minneapolis, MN (September-December 1996), and the Mittag-Leffler Institute, Sweden (Spring 2004). He has served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transaction on Automatic Control, the Systems and Control Letters, and the SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization. Dr. Georgiou was also elected to the Board of Governors of the Control Systems Society of the IEEE, effective January 2002. He was elected to Fellow of IEEE in 2000. Three times he has been a co-recipient of the G.S. Axelby Outstanding Paper Award of the IEEE Control Systems Society: in 1992 with Malcom Smith for the paper "Optimal robustness in the gap metric" [IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, 35:673-686, June 1990], in 1999 with Malcom Smith for the paper "Robustness Analysis of Nonlinear Feedback Systems An Input-Output Approach" [IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, 42 (9): 1200-1221, September 1997], and in 2003 with Chris Byrnes and Anders Lindquist for the paper "A generalized entropy criterion for Nevanlinna-Pick interpolation: A convex optimization approach to certain problems in systems and control" [IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, 45 (6): 822-839, June 2001]. Dr. Georgiou received the diploma in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in 1979, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Florida in 1983.
