Sergej Čelikovský is a full professor in control systems theory. He is also a head of Control Theory Department in Institute of Information Theory and Automation, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. He is internationally recognized for his contribution to nonlinear systems, chaotic systems control and synchronization, numerical methods, stability and stabilization, observers and filtering, analysis and control of underactuated systems with applications to walking robots, modelling, observation and control of biosystems.As a member of the aa4cc group he supervises several doctoral students and gives a graduate course on nonlinear systems theory.
He earned his Msc from Faculty of Numerical Mathematics and Cybernetics of the Moscow State University in 1984; RNDr. degree (Rerum Naturalium Doctoris) from the Mathematical and Physical Faculty of Charles University in Prague in 1985; CSc. degree (Candidate of Sciences - equivalent to Ph.D) from the Institute of Information Theory and Automation of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences in 1989.
