Prof. Dr.

Moritz Diehl




Expert in optimization and control, spanning from numerical method development to applications indifferent branches of engineering.

Prof. Dr. Moritz Diehl studied Physics and Mathematics at Heidelberg and Cambridge Universities and later received his Ph.D. from Heidelberg University in 2001 from the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing. From 2006 to 2013, he was a professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering at KU Leuven University. In 2013, he moved to the University of Freiburg where he leads the Systems Control and Optimization Laboratory at the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK), and is also affiliated to the Department of Mathematics.

His research interests are in optimization and control,  spanning from numerical method  development to applications indifferent branches of engineering, with a focus on embedded and on renewable energy systems. More can be found at
