Yacine Chitour

Yacine Chitour was born in Algiers, Algeria in 1968. He graduated from Ecole Polytechnique, France, in 1990 and he received a PhD degree in mathematics from Rutgers University and the “Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches” (HDR) in mathematics from Université Paris Sud in 1996 and 2003 respectively. Since 1996, he is with the Université Paris Sud, as a post-doc from 1996 to 1997, then as Maitre de conférences at the mathematics department from 1997 to 2003 and finally as professor at the L2S (''Laboratoire des signaux et systèmes'') since 2004. He also held a research position at the ''Centro Piaggio'', Università di Pisa, from 1995 to 1996 and a teaching position as Professeur chargé de cours at Ecole Polytechnique from 2005 to 2017. 

His research interests include control theory (controllability and stabilisation of non linear systems, geometric and optimal control), PDEs, subriemannian and applied differential geometry, signal processing, and their applications in robotics, deep learning and behavioral economics.

He is the author of more than 80 scientific papers. He supervised 17 PhD students and 7 post-doc. He has given lectures in Finland, Spain, Italy, Lebanon and Algeria. He has organized a CIMPA school in Tlemcen, Algeria in 2014 and a trimester on Sub-Riemannian Geometry at Institut Henri Poincaré, both in 2014. 

Dr. Chitour is coordinator of iCODE (Institute for control and decision), Lidex of UPSaclay from 2014 to 2016 and IRS of UPSaclay (Institute of Strategic Research) from 2017 to 2020. He is also scientific officer of CIMPA (Centre international de mathématiques pures et appliquées) and member of CNU (comité national des universités) Section 61 since 2015. 

Dr. Chitour is Senior member of IUF (Institut Universitaire de France) since 2018.
