BIOGRAPHY

Dr Matteo Rubagotti is an Associate Professor of Robotics and Mechatronics at Nazarbayev University. Before that, he was a Lecturer in Control Engineering at the University of Leicester, Leicester, UK (2015-2018), an Assistant Professor of Robotics and Mechatronics at Nazarbayev University (2012-2015), and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Trento, Trento, Italy, and then at IMT Institute for Advanced Studies, Lucca, Italy (2010-2012). During his PhD, he has spent visiting periods at the Center for Automotive Research of The Ohio State University, OH, USA (2008-2009), and at the Automatic Control Lab, ETH Zurich, Zurich Switzerland (2009).

He has authored or coauthored more than 45 technical papers in leading international journals and conferences in the fields of control engineering, robotics, and mechatronics. His research interests include the theory of optimal control, model predictive control, and sliding mode control, and their application to robotic systems (including variable-impedance-actuated robots, parallel manipulators, and tensegrity robots). 

Dr. Rubagotti is Associate Editor for the Conference on Decision and Control (2014-present), the American Control Conference (2014-present), and the European Control Conference (2018-present). He is IEEE Senior Member, and HEA Fellow.
