M. De la Sen was born in Arrigorriaga, Bizkaia, Basque Country, Spain. He 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, and the degree of Doctorat d’Etatés sciences physiques (specialite automatique et traitement du signal, high honors) from the University of Grenoble, France, in 1987. He serves currently as a Professor of systems engineering and automatic control at the University of Basque Country, where he serves as the Head of the Institute of Research and Development of Processes. He has coauthored about seven hundred papers in scientific journals and proceedings of conferences. He was a Visiting Professor at the universities of Grenoble (France), Newcastle (Australia), and Australian National University (Canberra, Australia), and he was formerly a Member of the Editorial Board of the Electrosoft Journal (CML Mechanical and Computational Engineering Publications). He is currently an Associate Editor of the following journals: Applied Mathematical Sciences; Nonlinear Analysis, Modelling and Control; Mathematics in Engineering, Science and Aerospace: the Transdisciplinary International Journal; Discrete Dynamics in Nature and Society; Nonlinear Studies: the International Journal; Fixed Point Theory and Applications. His main interest research areas 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.
