Konstantinos Tsakalis is a professor in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University. He is also the undergraduate program chair in electrical engineering. 

Tsakalis’ work is in the theory and application of control systems, system identification and optimization. Over the past 10 years, he has been working on the integrated systems identification and controller design and the implementation of high-performance multivariable controllers for semiconductor manufacturing applications of epileptic seizures. His educational objectives are to provide students with an operational understanding and hands-on-experience with modern feedback controller design techniques and implementation of embedded control systems.
