MS 107-81, California Institute of Technology
Pasadena, CA 91125

B.S. & M.S., Electrical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1977; Ph.D., Mathematics, University of California, Berkeley, 1984.


Dr. Doyle’s current research interests are in theoretical foundations for complex networks, primarily in engineering and biology, but also multiscale physics and financial markets, and the interplay between robustness, feedback, control, dynamical systems, computation, communications, and statistical physics. He was a pioneer in robust control, LQG robustness, (structured) singular value analysis, H∞‚ and recent extensions of robust control to model validation, system identification, system design, and implicit systems. He is a coauthor of CAD software that is currently the main control engineering tool for high-performance commercial and military aircraft and other high technology systems.

Dr. Doyle has received the IEEE Centennial Outstanding Young Engineer Award as the top young researcher (under 40) from the IEEE Controls Systems Society in 1984. In addition to this one-time award, he has also received the 1976 IEEE Hickernell Award, the 1983 American Automatic Control Council (AACC) Eckman Award, and the 1984 Bernard Friedman Award. He has been both an ONR and NSF Presidential Young Investigator. He served on the Air Force Scientific Advisory Board and is on the Steering Committee for the Alliance for Cellular Signaling and the organizing committee for the Institute for Pure and Applied Maths program in Communication Networks.
