Biography

Michael Cantoni is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Head of the Control and Signal Processing Group. He received the Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical - Hons. 1) and Bachelor of Science (Applied Mathematics) degrees from The University of Western Australia in 1995, and the PhD degree in Engineering from The University of Cambridge in 1998. Before joining The University of Melbourne in 2000, he held post-doctoral research positions with Department of Engineering at The University of Cambridge, and St. John's College, Cambridge. He has served as associate editor for IET Control Theory and Applications (2007–2010), Systems & Control Letters (2007–2014), and IFAC Automatica (2015-2018). In 2014, he was co-recipient of the IEEE CSS Control Systems Technology Award for work with industry partner Rubicon Water on the automation of rural water networks. His research interests include robust and optimal control theory, distributed control and optimization of networks, time-varying and sampled-data systems, model approximation, multidimensional systems, and applications in water and power distribution.
