Reinaldo Martinez Palhares

Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil


Reinaldo Martinez Palhares joined the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), Minas Gerais, Brazil in 2002 as an Associate Professor of control and automated systems engineering in the Department of Electronics Engineering, Faculty of the Engineering Schools. He received his B.S. degree in electrical and telecommunications engineering from the Federal University of Goias, Goias, Brazil in 1992 and both his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Campinas, Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1995 and 1998, respectively. After completing his Ph.D. degree, he served as a Postdoctoral Research Associate from 1998 to 1999 and as an Associate Professor from 2000 to 2002 at the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, Minas Gerais, Brazil. In a broad sense, his main research interests include dynamic systems and multiobjective optimization theory/applications, robust linear/nonlinear control theory, filtering theory, time delays, and soft computing. In particular, his work focuses on the stability analysis and also the control/filter problem for uncertain systems with multiple performance indexes using LMIs together with alternative nonconvex optimization techniques, fault detection and isolation in dynamic systems, soft computing for control purposes, fuzzy Takagi-Sugeno approaches for nonlinear control, and less conservative time-delay formulations.
