Maarten Schoukens is an Assistant Professor in the Control Systems (CS) Group at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology. His main research interests include the measurement and data-driven modeling of nonlinear dynamical and linear parameter-varying systems using system identification and machine learning techniques, experimental design, and frequency domain methods in identification. Maarten was awarded an FWO Ph.D. Fellowship in 2011, an EU - Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship in 2018, and an ERC Starting Grant in 2022. Maarten is active as an associate editor for the IEEE CSS (CDC, ACC) and the ECC Conference Editorial Board, and has been active as an associate editor for multiple IFAC conferences. Finally, Maarten is a co-organizer of the initiative promoting the use of common datasets in data-driven nonlinear dynamical modeling research.


Maarten Schoukens received the master’s degree in electrical engineering and the Ph.D. degree in engineering from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Brussels, Belgium, in 2010 and 2015 respectively. From 2015 to 2017, he has been a Post-Doctoral Researcher with the ELEC Department, VUB. In October 2017 he joined the Control Systems research group, TU/e, Eindhoven, The Netherlands as a Post-Doctoral Researcher, since 2018 he is an Assistant Professor in the same group.
