Richard M. Murray received a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from California Institute of Technology in 1985 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1988 and 1991, respectively. He is currently the Thomas E. and Doris Everhart Professor of Control & Dynamical Systems and Bioengineering at Caltech. Murray’s research is in the application of feedback and control to networked systems, with applications in biology and autonomy. Current projects include analysis and design of biomolecular feedback circuits; specification, design, and synthesis of networked control systems; and novel architectures for control using slow computing.
