Richard D. Braatz (born July 19, 1966) is the Edwin R. Gilliland Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology known for his research in control theory and its applications to chemical, pharmaceutical, and materials systems. He has received many honors including the Hertz Foundation Thesis Prize, the Donald P. Eckman Award from the American Automatic Control Council, the Curtis W. McGraw Research Award from the Engineering Research Council, and the Antonio Ruberti Young Researcher Prize from the Antonio Ruberti Foundation and IEEE Control Systems Society. Braatz is a Fellow of the International Federation of Automatic Control, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and American Association for the Advancement of Science. Braatz graduated from Oregon State University with a B.S. in 1988 with an undergraduate thesis on heat exchanger design supervised by Octave Levenspiel. He worked at Chevron Research and Avery Dennison before receiving his M.S. and Ph.D. in robust control from the California Institute of Technology under the direction of Professor Manfred Morari. His thesis included a proof that robust control problems are NP-hard. After a postdoctoral year at DuPont, he moved to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he rose to the position of Millennium Chair and Professor, with positions in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Science and Engineering, Bioengineering, Applied Mathematics, and Computational Science and Engineering. Braatz made contributions in the areas of robust optimal control, fault detection and diagnosis , sheet and film processes, and crystallization. After serving as a Visiting Scholar for a year at Harvard University, he moved to MIT in 2010 where he continues research in systems and control theory and its applications.
