Short Bio

Prof. George A. Rovithakis received the diploma (five years studies) in Electrical Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) in 1990, the M.S. and Ph.D Degrees in Electronic & Computer Engineering both from the Technical University of Crete (TUC) in 1994 and 1995. His doctoral thesis focused on developing robust neuro-adaptive controllers for uncertain nonlinear systems. He was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow of IKY at TUC in 1998 conducting research on “Fault Detection and Control Rehabilitation in Dynamical Systems using Neural Networks”. Currently is a Professor at the Dept. Of Electrical & Computer Engineering of AUTH. He was listed in the top 2% of the researchers in the world according to the impact of his published work (Stanford University). Since 2023 he serves as Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control; elected member of the European Control Association; Chairman of the IEEE Greece Section Control Systems Chapter.
