Tom Bloemers is a PhD candidate in the Control Systems group of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He received his Bachelor’s degree in Mechatronics from Fontys University of Applied Sciences, Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in 2014 and his Master’s degree, Cum Laude, in Systems and Control from Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in 2018. During his Master, he worked on the topic of nanometer accurate motion control of a magnetically levitated planar actuator, carried out in the Control Systems group at TU/e. His current research is on the topic efficient Linear Parameter-Varying (LPV) modeling and control, under supervision of dr.ir. Roland Tóth and dr.ir. Tom Oomen. His research interests are modeling and control of LPV systems, robust control and motion control.
Chris Verhoek obtained his BSc degree in Mechatronics from the Avans University of Applied Sciences (The Netherlands) in 2017 and is currently finalizing his MSc degree in Systems and Control from the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Parallel to his BSc and MSc studies he worked at Prodrive Technologies and Sioux CCM as (control) engineer. For his MSc degree, he works on the topic of incremental dissipativity theory (internship) and shaping (graduation) for nonlinear systems, carried out in the Control Systems group at TU/e.
Pepijn Cox was born in Arnhem, The Netherlands, in 1989. He has received his B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering (cum laude) in 2010 and his M.Sc. degree in Systems and Control Engineering (cum laude) in 2013, both at the Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), The Netherlands. In 2018, he obtained his Ph.D. degree in the Control Systems group at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TUe), The Netherlands. His Ph.D. topic was ‘‘Towards Efficient Identification of Linear Parameter-Varying State-Space Modelsʼʼ under the supervision of prof.dr.ir. P.M.J. Van den Hof and dr.ir. R. Tóth. He has been a postdoctoral researcher in the Control Systems group at the TUe and he is currently employed as a control engineer at Effect Photonics in Eindhoven. Pepijn Coxʼs main research interest is in linear parameter-varying (LPV) and nonlinear system identification and modeling.
