Bart De Schutter's CV

Bart De Schutter received the degree in electrotechnical-mechanical engineering in 1991 and the doctoral degree in Applied Sciences (summa cum laude with congratulations of the examination jury) in 1996, both at the K.U.Leuven, Belgium. The subject of his PhD thesis was "Max-algebraic system theory for discrete event systems". After obtaining his PhD degree, he was a senior research assistant of the FWO-Flanders at the ESAT-SISTA research group of the K.U.Leuven.

In 1998 he transferred to the Control Systems Engineering group of the Faculty of Information Technology and Systems of Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. In 2003 the control groups of Delft University of Technology merged into the Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC). Currently, Bart De Schutter is a full professor DCSC. Since September 2018 he is the head of department of DCSC.

In 1998 Bart De Schutter was awarded the Richard C. DiPrima Prize for his PhD thesis. In 1999 he has received the triennial Robert Stock Prize for PhD theses in Exact Sciences at K.U.Leuven. In 2003 he obtained a VIDI grant on the topic of multi-agent control of large-scale hybrid systems from the Dutch Technology Foundation STW. He was also the coordinator of the European FP7 STREP project Hierarchical and distributed model predictive control of large-scale complex systems (HD-MPC) and the European H2020 project SEarch, identificAtion and Collection of marine Litter with Autonomous Robots (SeaClear).
In 2021 he was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant on the topic "A novel control paradigm for large-scale hybrid networks (CLariNet)".

Bart De Schutter is IEEE Fellow, IFAC Fellow, senior editor for the IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, and associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control.
