Grussler, Christian

Assistant Professor
History Highlights:
  • Christian Grussler is an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. He conducts research that broadly intersects with the areas of Control Theory, Mathematical Optimization and Machine Learning. In particular, he is interested in the development of total positivity theory towards a unifying framework of these areas. Until January 2021, he was a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, UC Berkeley, United States. Prior to that, he was a Research Associate with the control group at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom as well as a postdoc and PhD student at the Department of Automatic Control, Lund University, Sweden. In his undergraduate studies, he was part of a double degree program between the University of Kaiserslautern and Lund University. He received an MSc. in Engineering Mathematics from Lund University and a Dipl.-Math. techn. in Industrial Mathematics from the University of Kaiserslautern.
