Prof. Dr. Rolf Findeisen

Rolf Findeisen studied engineering cybernetics at the University of Stuttgart and chemical engineering at University of Wisconsin-Madison. After his studies, he joined the Institut for Automatic Control at ETH Zürich, before moving with his advisor (Frank Allgöwer) to the University of Stuttgart, where he obtained his Dr.-Ing. In 2007 he joined the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg where he heads the Laboratory for Systems Theory and Automatic Control. He has spent time as a visiting professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, EPF Lausanne, Imperial College London and the Mitsubishi Research Laboratory in Cambridge. Rolf is editor and associated editor of several journals such as the IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems and the IEEE Control Systems Magazine. He is actively involved in the organization of international conferences and workshops, such as the World Congress of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) 2020 in Berlin or the conference on the Foundations of Systems Biology in Engineering (FOSBE) 2016.  

The main research interest of Rolf Findeisen and his group are the method development for optimal and predictive control of uncertain, autonomous and cyber physical systems, the control of interconnected systems, system identification and the fusion of learning and control. Main fields of applications span from systems biology, biotechnology, systems medicine, up to mechatronic and robotic systems.
