||Alessandro Astolfi was born in Rome, Italy, in 1967. He graduated in electrical engineering from the University of Rome in 1991. In 1992 he joined ETH-Zurich where he obtained a M.Sc. in Information Theory in 1995 and the Ph.D. degree with Medal of Honor in 1995 with a thesis on discontinuous stabilisation of nonholonomic systems. In 1996 he was awarded a Ph.D. from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” for his work on nonlinear robust control. Since 1996 he has been with the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of Imperial College London, London (UK), where he is currently Professor of Nonlinear Control Theory and College Consul for the Faculty and Engineering and the Business School, and was Head of the Control and Power Group from 2009 to 2022. From 1998 to 2003 he was also an Associate Professor at the Dept. of Electronics and Information of the Politecnico of Milano. Since 2005 he has also been a Professor at Dipartimento di Ingegneria Civile e Ingegneria Informatica, University of Rome Tor Vergata.
His research interests are focussed on mathematical control theory and control applications, with special emphasis for the problems of discontinuous stabilisation, robust and adaptive control, observer design and model reduction.
||Marcin Witczak was born in Poland in 1973, received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Zielona Góra (Poland), the Ph.D. degree in automatic control and robotics from the Wrocław University of Technology (Poland), and the D.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Zielona Góra, in 1998, 2002 and 2007, respectively. In 2015 he received a full professorial title. Since then, Marcin Witczak has been a professor of control and computer engineering at the Institute of Control and Computation Engineering, University of Zielona Góra.
