About

Nuno C. Martins graduated with a M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from I.S.T., Portugal, in 1997, and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, in 2004. He has also concluded a Financial Technology Option program at Sloan School of Management (MIT) in 2004.

He is Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Maryland at College Park, where he also holds a joint appointment with the Institute for Systems Research. He was Director of the Maryland Robotics Center from 2012 until 2014.

Prof. Martins received the 2006 American Automatic Control Council O. Hugo Schuck Award, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2007, the 2008 IEEE CSS Axelby Award for the best paper in the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, the 2010 Outstanding ISR Faculty Award, the 2010 George Corcoran Award from the ECE Department / UMD and he was an UMD/ADVANCE Leadership Fellow in 2013.

He served as Associate Editor for Systems and Control Letters (Elsevier), Automatica and the IEEE Control Systems Society Conference Editorial Board. He was also a program Vice-Chair for the IEEE Conference on Decision and Control in 2013 and 2014.

His research interests are in distributed control, team decision, optimization, networked control and communications.
