Numerous natural phenomena are characterized by spatio-temporal dynamics which give rise to time evolving spatial patterns. Although studies that address the problem of modelling these complex dynamics exist, a model based control approach for such systems is still a challenging task. The work in this thesis is concerned with the development of control methods for such spatio-temporal systems, where interface growth is represented using a geometric evolution law. In particular, the focus is set on the control of dendritic crystal growth and wind-aided wildfire spread.
