The title of his PhD thesis is ’Steady-State Behaviour of Stochastically Excited Nonlinear Dynamic Systems’.

From 1999 until now he has been affiliated with the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Eindhoven University of Technology in the group of Dynamics and Control (chaired by Henk Nijmeijer) and currently holds a position as a full professor. He also holds a part-time full professor position within the Delft Center for Systems and Control, Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. Moreover, he is an adjunct full professor at the Civil Environmental and Geo-Engineering Department of the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, U.S.A.

In 2000, Nathan van de Wouw has been working at Philips, the Centre for Industrial Technology, group Acoustics and Control, the Netherlands, within a research project for Philips Medical Systems on the active noise reduction of MRI scanners. In 2001, he has been working for several months at the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), TNO-Automotive, department of Crash Safety, group Biomechanics, within a project on the modelling of active muscle behaviour in the human torso for crash-safety simulations. In 2006/2007, he has been a visiting professor at the Center for Control, Dynamical Systems, and Computation, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, U.S.A., in the group of prof. Jo˜ao Hespanha, working on the topic of Networked Control Systems. In July 2007, he has been a visiting researcher at CSIRO Petroleum, Perth, Australia.
