Renato Borges has a Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Goias (2002), a Master degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Campinas (2004), a Doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Campinas (2009) and a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of New Mexico (2009) (USA). From July 2009 to February 2010 he held a post-doctoral fellowship from the State of São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) working at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Campinas. He is currently an assistant professor at the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Brasilia, Brazil, and a control system researcher affiliated with the Laboratory of Automation and Robotics and with the Aerospace Science and Innovation Laboratory. He has experience in Electrical Engineering with emphasis on control system theory, working mainly in the following topics: stability analysis of uncertain systems, linear systems with parameter variations, filter and controller design, Lyapunov theory, H-2 and H-infinite performance and linear matrix inequalities. He is an ham radio with callsign PU2ERB.
