Prof. Uri Shaked, who taught for years in Tel Aviv University’s department of electrical engineering and, after retirement, went to Jerusalem’s Azrielli College of Engineering, will receive this spring the Israel Prize for Engineering Research. His research interests include robust linear control and estimation, time-delay systems, switching systems, and control and estimation of linear stochastic systems.

Born in Petah Tikva in 1943, he joined the IDF’s academic program and studied math and physics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem for his bachelor’s degree. He did his master’s degree there in physics and a doctorate in applied mathematics at the Weizmann Institute, after which he returned to the IDF. He joined TAU’s engineering faculty in 1976, serving twice as dean, and has been a visiting professor in prestigious universities abroad.
