Bio

His research interests are centered around optimal, multi-dimensional, data-driven decision-making through the use of techniques from mathematical programming; linear and nonlinear systems theory; probability models; statistics; and machine learning. Specific technical areas include:

  • Optimal decision-making for multi-robot systems under communication constraints
  • Sensor data fusion for naval ship monitoring
  • Targeting algorithms based on modeling and predicting customer behavior
  • Cognitive bias effects in handwriting forensics
  • Embedded systems design for data acquisition and control

On the education front, he works on bringing innovation to the classroom by introducing novel course content, pedagogical methodologies, and evaluation techniques. He is leading research efforts that explore credentialing in engineering education, the scalability of engineering education innovations and technology, and engineering-specific learning theories for data analytics education. He has won several awards for his teaching, including the 2010 Continuing Excellence in Teaching award at Drexel University.
