Jessy W. Grizzle
Control Systems Laboratory
EECS Department
University of Michigan

Jessy W. Grizzle received the Ph.D. in electrical engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 1983. Since September 1987, he has been with The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where he is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He is a past Associate Editor of the Transactions on Automatic Control and Systems & Control Letters, served as Publications Chairman for the 1989 CDC, and in 1997 was elected to the Control Systems Society's Board of Governors. Dr. Grizzle's major research interests lie in the field of control systems. Since his doctoral work, he has investigated theoretical questions in nonlinear systems, where he has concentrated on discrete-time problems and observer design. He has been a consultant in the automotive industry since 1986, where he jointly holds several patents dealing with emissions reduction through improved control system design. In 1992, along with K.L. Dobbins and J.A. Cook of Ford Motor Company, he received the Paper of the Year Award from the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society. Since 1991 he has been working with an interdisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Michigan on applying systems and control techniques to improve the operation of plasma-based microelectronics manufacturing equipment. Dr. Grizzle was a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow from January to December 1984; he received a Presidential Young Investigator Award in 1987, the University of Michigan's Henry Russell Award for outstanding research in 1993, a College of Engineering Teaching Award, also in 1993, and was made a Fellow of the IEEE in 1997.
