​   Prof. Pierre Rouchon 
Centre Automatique et Systèmes 

Prof. Pierre Rouchon graduated from Ecole Polytechnique in 1983, and obtained his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Mines ParisTech in 1990. In 2000 and his “Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches” in Mathematics from University Paris-Sud Orsay. From 1993 to 2005, he was associated professor at Ecole Polytechnique in Applied Mathematics. From 1998 to 2002, he was the head of the Centre Automatique et Systèmes of Mines ParisTech. He is now professor at Mines ParisTech. His fields of interest include nonlinear control and system theory with its applications. His contributions include differential flatness and its extension to infinite dimensional systems, nonlinear observers and symmetries, process control, motion planing and tracking for mechanical systems, feedback stabilization and estimation for electrical drives, internal combustion engines and quantum systems.
