Jack Haddad received all his degrees B.Sc. (Cum Laude) (2003), M.Sc. (Cum Laude) (2006), and Ph.D. (2010) in the Transportation Engineering from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Urban Transport Systems Laboratory (LUTS), EPFL, Switzerland. His main research interests include management and control of transport networks, traffic light control, optimal control theory, Model Predictive Control, and hybrid systems.
In 2005-2006, he was in charge for programming and integrating his M.Sc. thesis' algorithm into the Israeli mandatory software for planning and evaluating signal timing plans. In 2008, he was a visiting researcher at the Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC), Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. He received the "Office of the Executive Vice President for Research at Technion" grant (2008) for his Ph.D. research, the "Lenget award for excellence in teaching" (2007), and the "student travel grant" from the IAAC - Israeli Association for Automatic Control (2010).
