prof. dr. ir. J.M.A. (Jacquelien) Scherpen



Her research area covers order reduction methods for networks and nonlinear control systems in order to make control design and implementation feasible for complex nonlinear systems. Furthermore, she studies the design of nonlinear  and often distributed controllers for complex applications, using passivity and dissipativity concepts, as well as optimization methods. Examples of such systems can be found in industry, robotics, micro systems, semi-conductors, space applications, smart energy systems and smart grids.
