Academic career and education

Matthias A. Müller received a Diploma degree in Engineering Cybernetics from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, and an M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, US, both in 2009. In 2014, he obtained a Ph.D. from the University of Stuttgart for a dissertation entitled "Distributed and economic model predictive control: beyond setpoint stabilization". From 2014 to 2019, he held a lecturer and later senior lecturer position (Akademischer Oberrat) at the Institute for Systems Theory and Automatic Control at the University of Stuttgart. He joined the Leibniz University Hannover as full professor for automatic control and director of the Institute of Automatic Control in February 2019.

Matthias Müller's research interests include nonlinear control and estimation, model predictive control, distributed control and learning-based control, with application in different fields including biomedical engineering and robotics. He has received various awards and fellowships for his work, including the 2015 EECI PhD award (award for the best PhD thesis in Europe in the field of control for complex and heterogeneous systems), an ERC starting grant in 2020, the inaugural Brockett-Willems Outstanding Paper Award for the best paper published in Systems & Control Letters in the period 2014-2018, and the IEEE CSS George S. Axelby Outstanding Paper Award 2022. He is a member of several technical committees of the IEEE Control Systems Society and IFAC, and serves as program committee member and associate editor for various international conferences, including the Conference Editorial Board of the IEEE Control Systems Society. He is an editor of the International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control.
