Manuel De la Sen received the M.S. degree (with honors) in applied physics electronics and automation and the Ph.D. degree (high honors and special mention) in applied physics from the University of Basque Country, Bilbao, Spain, in 1975 and 1979, respectively. He serves currently as a Professor of systems engineering and automatic control at the same University, where he serves as the Head of the Institute of Research and Development of Processes. He worked as a Visiting Professor at the University of Grenoble, Grenoble, France, University of Newcastle, Callaghan, NSW, Australia, and the Australian National University, Canberra, ACT, Australia. He worked formerly as a Member of the Editorial Board of the Electrosoft Journal (CML Mechanical and Computational Engineering publications). He also serves as an Associate Editor of the journals of Applied Mathematical Sciences, Nonlinear Analysis, Modeling and Control, Discrete Dynamics in Nature and Society, and Fixed Point Theory and Applications. His main research areas of interest are discrete and sampled-data control systems, nonperiodic and adaptive sampling, adaptive control, fixed-point theory, positive systems, stability, models for ecology, epidemic models, time-delay systems, artificial intelligence and heuristic tools for dynamic systems, and ordinary differential equations.
