Andrea Serrani received the B.Eng. (Laurea)
degree cum laude in Electrical Engineering from the University of
Ancona, Italy, in 1993. He received the Ph.D. degree (Dottorato di
Ricerca) in Artificial Intelligence Systems from the same
institution in 1997, under the supervision of Prof. Giuseppe Conte.
From 1994 to 1999, he was a Fulbright Fellow at the Department of
Systems Science and Mathematics,Washington University in St.Louis,
where he obtained the Doctor of Science degree in Systems Science
and Mathematics in 2000, under the supervision of Prof. Alberto
Isidori. From 2000 to 2002 he held a research associate position at the
Department of Electronics and Automation at the University of Ancona,
Italy. From 2002 to 2008, he was an Assistant Professor with the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The Ohio State
University, Columbus, Ohio, where he is currently an Asoociate
Professor with tenure.
Prof. Serrani is the recipient of a 2007 Lumley Research Award and the co-recipient (with Prof. Mo Samimy) of the 2008 Lumley Interdisciplinary Research Award, both from the College of Engineering at OSU. He is a member of IEEE, AIAA and IFAC. He is an Associate Editor for Automatica, The International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control, and serves in the IEEE Conference Editorial Board as Area Editor for Nonlinear Systems, Area Editor for Fluid Flow Systems, and Associate Editor for invited and regular papers in Nonlinear, Adaptive, and Aerospace Systems.
Prof. Serrani's research interests lie in the
field of control and systems theory, with emphasis on nonlinear
control, tracking and regulation, nonlinear dynamical systems,
and application to aerospace and marine systems. He is currently
involved in research projects on modeling, guidance and control
of air-breathing hypersonic vehicle, and on areodynamic flow control,
supported by NASA and AFRL/DAGSI.
He is the co-author (with A. Isidori and L. Marconi) of the book Robust Autonomous Guidance: An Internal
Model-Based Approach, published by Springer-Verlag, and the
author or co-author of more than 100 journal and conference papers and
chapters in edited books.
