About me

My name is Stephan Trenn and I am currently an Associate Professor  for “Systems and Control” in the Jan C. Willems Center for Systems and Control (in particular in the SCAA-group) at the University of Groningen, Netherlands. My contact details are given on this small website.

My main research interests is the analysis and control of switched differential-algebraic equations (DAEs). In general I am interested in questions of mathematical control theory with a focus on discontinuous effects (switches) as well as on nonlinear adaptive control (in particular, funnel control).

On my Publications site you can click on specific keywords to see all my publication for the chosen area.
