Biography

Marc Bodson earned the degree of Ingénieur Civil Mécanicien et Electricien from the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium, in 1980, the M.S. degree in electrical engineering and computer science and the M.S. degree in aeronautics and astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, in 1982 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1986.

Currently, he is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering with the University of Utah, Salt Lake City. He served as Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering from July 2003 - July 2009.

His research interests are in adaptive control, with applications to electromechanical systems and aerospace. He is the coauthor, with S. Sasty, of the book Adaptive Control: Stability, Convergence, and Robustness (Prentice-Hall, 1989).

He was an Assistant Professor and an Associate Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, between 1987 and 1993. He was a Belgian American Educational Foundation Fellow in 1980, a Visiting Lecturer at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1987, and a Lady Davis Fellow at the Technion, Haifa, Israel, in 1990.

Prof. Bodson was the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology from January 2000 to December 2003.

Prof. Bodson was named an IEEE Fellow in 2006 and is currently the Chair of the IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) in the IEEE Utah Section.
