Short Bio

Sander Wahls received a Diplom degree in mathematics from TU Berlin in 2007, and a doctorate in electrical engineering (summa cum laude) from the same university in 2011. He is currently an associate professor with ius promovendi at the Delft Center for Systems & Control at TU Delft. Before joining TU Delft in 2014, Sander spent two years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. His research is focused on system theory and signal processing for nonlinear systems, currently in the areas of integrable systems, nonlinear Fourier transforms and their application in engineering problems. He received the 2015 Johann-Philipp-Reis Award for his work on fast nonlinear Fourier transforms. In 2016, the European Research Council (ERC) awarded him a Starting Grant on the same topic. Since 2021, he is serving on the ECOC Subcommittee “Techniques for digitally enhancing optical communication”. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
