Professor Mitter\'s research has spanned the broad areas of Systems, Communication and Control. Although his primary contributions have
been on the theoretical foundations of the field, he has also contributed to significant engineering applications, notably in the control of
interconnected power systems and patter recognition.
His current research interestes are theory of stochastic and adaptive control; mathematical physics and its relationship to system theory; image
analysis and computer vision; and structure, function and organization of complex systems.
Sanjoy K. Mitter received his Ph.D. degree from the Imperial College of Science and Technology, University of London, in 1965.
Prior to 1965, Sanjoy K. Mitter worked as a research engineer at Brown Boveri & Co. Ltd., Switzerland (now ASEA Brown Boveri), and Battelle
Institute, Geneva, Switzerland. He taught at Case Western Reserve Univerisity from 1965-1969 and joint MIT in 1969 first as a Visiting Professor
and then in 1970 as Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He is currently Professor of
Electrical Engineering and Co-Director of the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems. Professor Mitter has held visiting positions at the
Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Bombay, India; Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, Italy; Imperial College of Science and Technology;
Institue National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique, France; University of Groningen, the Netherlands, and several universities in
the United States.
Professor Mitter has served on several advisory committees and editorial boards for IEEE, SIAM, AMS, NSF, and ARO. He is currently Associate
Editor of Journal of Applied Mathematics and Optimization; SIAM Review; the Ulam Quarterly; and Random and Computational Dynamics. He is a
fellow of the IEEE. In 1988 he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering.
