Prof. Yann Le Gorrec, FEMTO-ST, École Nationale Supérieure de Mécanique et des Microtechniques (ENSMM), Besançon, France.

Yann Le Gorrec received the Eng. degree in control, electronics, and computer engineering from the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA), Toulouse, France, in 1995, and the Ph.D. degree from the National Higher School of Aeronautics and Aerospace, Supaero, Toulouse, France, in 1998, with focus on robust control and self-scheduled controller synthesis.

From 1999 to 2008, he was an Associate Professor in automatic control at the Labora- tory of Control and Chemical Engineering, Lyon Claude Bernard University (LAGEP), Villeurbanne, France.

He has worked on port-Hamiltonian systems and their use for the modeling and control of irreversible and distributed parameter systems with an appli- cation to physico-chemical processes.

Since September 2008, he has been a Professor at the National Engineering Institute in Mechanics and Microtechnologies. He is Deputy Director of the research department AS2M of the FEMTO-ST Institute.

His current field of research is the control of nonlinear and infinite-dimensional systems with an application to smart material based actuators and boundary controlled systems. He is the co-author of about 50 journal papers on these research topics. Dr. Le Gorrec has been Co-Chair of the IFAC Technical Committee 2.6 on Distributed Parameter Systems since 2009, and since 2016, has been Chair of the IEEE Control Systems Society Technical Committee on Distributed Parameter Systems.
