Rodolphe Sepulchre is Professor and Chair of the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Liege, Belgium. He received his engineering degree and Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics from the University of Louvain, Belgium, in 1990 and 1994 respectively. He held various research and visiting positions at UCSB (1994-1996), Princeton (2002-2003), and Mines Paris-Tech (2009-2010).
His main research interests include nonlinear control systems, optimization on matrix manifolds with applications to large-scale problems in linear algebra, and applications of dynamical systems, in particular in the area of rhythmic and collective behavior.
He currently serves as an associate editor for the journals SIAM J. of Control and Optimization, Mathematics of Control, Signals, and Systems, Journal of Nonlinear Science, and Systems and Control Letters. He is a fellow of the IEEE and the recipient of the 2008 IEEE CSS Ruberti young researcher prize.
