Liao-Cho Professor of Engineering
Alexandre Bayen received a degree in engineering and applied mathematics from the Ecole Polytechnique, France, in July 1998, an M.S. degree in aeronautics and astronautics from Stanford University in June 1999, and a Ph.D. in aeronautics and astronautics from Stanford University in December 2003. He was a Visiting Researcher at NASA Ames Research Center from 2000 to 2003. Between January 2004 and December 2004, he worked as the Research Director of the Autonomous Navigation Laboratory at the Laboratoire de Recherches Balistiques et Aerodynamiques, (Ministere de la Defense, Vernon, France), where he holds the rank of Major. He has been an Assistant Professor at UC Berkeley since January 2005, and an Associate Professor since 2010.
Bayen conducts research in modelling and control of distributed parameters systems, with applications to transportation systems (air traffic control, highway systems), and distribution systems (water distribution networks). His research involves control of systems modelled by partial differential equations, combinatorial optimization, viability theory, and optimal control. Alexandre Bayen is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and the Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
Bayen has also authored one book and over 100 articles in peer reviewed journals and conferences. He is the recipient of the Ballhaus Award from Stanford University, 2004, of the CAREER award from the National Science Foundation, 2009 and he is a NASA Top 10 Innovators on Water Sustainability, 2010. His projects Mobile Century and Mobile Millennium received the 2008 Best of ITS Award for ‘Best Innovative Practice’, at the ITS World Congress and a TRANNY Award from the California Transportation Foundation, 2009. Bayen is the recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) award from the White House, 2010. Mobile Millennium has been featured more than 100 times in the media, including TV channels and radio stations (CBS, NBC, ABC, CNET, NPR, KGO, the BBC), and in the popular press (Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, LA Times).
