# Biography

Bart Besselink received his M.Sc. degree (cum laude) in mechanical engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in 2008. In 2012, he obtained his Ph.D. degree from the same university for his thesis on model reduction techniques for nonlinear control systems. His Ph.D. research was supervised by Prof. Henk Nijmeijer and Prof. Nathan van de Wouw.

In September 2012, Bart was a short-time visiting researcher in the group of Prof. Jun-ichi Imura at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan. Subsequently, he started as a postdoctoral researcher at the ACCESS Linnaeus Centre and Department of Automatic Control at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, with Prof. Karl Henrik Johansson and Prof. Henrik Sandberg, working on model order reduction techniques for large-scale networked systems and intelligent transportation systems.
