Murat Arcak received his B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey (1996) and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, Santa Barbara (1997 and 2000). His research is in dynamical systems and control theory with applications to synthetic biology and multi-agent systems. Prior to joining Berkeley in 2008, he was a faculty member at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He received a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation in 2003, the
Donald P. Eckman Award from the American Automatic Control Council in 2006, and the
Control and Systems Theory Prize from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) in 2007. He is a member of SIAM and a fellow of IEEE.
