Christian Ebenbauer received his MS (Dipl.-Ing.) in Telematics (Computer Science and Electrical Engineering) from Graz University of Technology, Austria, in 2000 and his PhD (Dr.-Ing.) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, in 2005. After having completed his PhD, he was a Postdoctoral Associate and an Erwin Schrodinger Fellow at the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. Since April 2009, he is a full professor at the Institute for Systems Theory and Automatic Control, University of Stuttgart, Germany. His research interests lie in the areas of dynamical systems, control theory, optimization and computation. Prize of the Vereinigung von Freunden der Universität Stuttgart for doctoral thesis 2006, DFG Emmy Noether Programme 2008.
