Biography

Professor Paul Goulart joined the University of Oxford in 2014 as an Associate Professor in Engineering Science. He received his SB and MSc degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Following his undergraduate studies he was a software developer in the flight operations centre for the Chandra X-Ray Observatory at the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics, and later an engineer in the Autonomous Systems group at the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory.

In 2003, Paul was selected as a Gates Scholar at the University of Cambridge, where he received a PhD in Control Engineering in 2007. From 2007 to 2011 he was a Lecturer in control systems in the Department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London, and from 2011 to 2014 a Senior Researcher in the Automatic Control Laboratory at ETH Zurich. He is a member of the Control Group in the department of Engineering Science.
