Dr. Kyoung-Dae Kim is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Denver. His research interest is to develop theories, tools, and softwares for autonomous, reliable, and cooperative dynamical systems. He is currently focusing on collision-free autonomous ground transportation system, human-machine interface for cooperation, and fault-tolerant control for fail-safe operation, etc.
Dr. Allistair Moses is the Engineering Manager at femtoScale Inc. where he oversees the development of the company’s products which range from smart instrumentation suites to cutting edge MEMS-based microbalances. Prior to joining femtoScale he earned a PhD in Mechatronics Systems Engineering at the University of Denver. During this time his dissertation research background focused on both the hardware and software needed for RADAR-based real time aircraft collision avoidance.
Dr. Margareta Stefanovic is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Prior to joining DU, she held the same appointment at the University of Wyoming, which she joined after earning a PhD at the University of Southern California. Her research background focuses on systems and control: network control systems (multi-agent systems, distributed coordination, backbone formation, node localization, congestion control) and robust adaptive control systems theory and wind energy applications.
Dr. Robert Whitman is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is also the Director of Academic Programs for the department.
