Mireille Esther Broucke is a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Toronto, interested in control theory, mathematical systems theory, and swarm robotics.[1][2]

Broucke did her undergraduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin, where her father Roger A. Broucke, an immigrant from Belgium, was a professor of aerospace engineering and engineering mechanics.[3] She graduated in 1984, with a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. She went on to graduate study in electrical engineering and computer science at the University of California, Berkeley, earning a master's degree in 1987,[1] with summer jobs working on missile tracking software for Texas Instruments, General Dynamics, and Lockheed Corporation.[2]

After completing her master's degree, she stayed in the San Francisco Bay Area, working on software for control systems and simulation at Intergraph and Integrated Systems.[2] She returned to Berkeley for a Ph.D., which she completed in 2000.[1] Her dissertation, supervised by Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli, was Qualitative Analysis, Model Checking, and Controller Synthesis of Hybrid Systems.[4] After postdoctoral studies at Berkeley she joined the Toronto faculty in 2001.[1]
