Thursday March 19, 2020, 9:00am-3:00pm

Professor Ian Petersen
Australian National University

Biography : Ian R. Petersen was born in VIC, Australia. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Rochester, NY, USA, in 1984.
From 1983 to 1985, he was a Post-Doctoral Fellow with The Australian National University, Canberra, ACT, Australia. In 1985, he joined the University of New South Wales, Canberra. In 2002 and 2003, he was the Executive Director for Mathematics, Information, and Communications with the Australian Research Council, Canberra, Australia. In 2004 and 2005, he was the Acting Deputy Vice-Chancelor Research with the University of New South Wales. He held an Australian Research Council Professorial Fellowship from 2005 to 2007, an Australian Research Council Federation Fellowship from 2007 to 2012, and an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowship from 2012 to 2017. In 2017, he moved to The Australian National University, where he is currently a Professor in the Research School of Engineering. His current research interests include robust control theory, quantum control theory, and stochastic control theory. Dr. Petersen is the Fellow of IFAC and the Australian Academy of Science. He was Elected IFAC Council Member for the 2014–2017 Triennium. He was also elected to be a member of the IEEE Control Systems Society Board of Governors for the periods 2011–2013 and 2015–2017. He is the Vice president for Technical Activity for the Asian Control Association. He was the General Chair of the 2012 Australian Control Conference and the 2015 IEEE Multi-Conference on Systems and Control. He has been an Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON AUTOMATIC CONTROL, IEEE SYSTEMS AND CONTROL LETTERS, Automatica, and SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization. He is currently an Editor for Automatica in the area of optimization in systems and control.
