I am the Vice Provost for Strategic Initiatives and Dean of Integrative Programs at the Colorado School of Mines, where I was previously the Dean of the College of Engineering and Computational Sciences (2011-2018). I am also a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering. Click here for a summer 2012 interview in Mines Magazine.

My general research interests include iterative learning control (ILC), autonomous systems and robotics, and applications of control to industrial and mechatronic systems. More recently I have been working on discrete repetitive control, a generalization of ILC, and on ILC for systems whose dynamics vary from trial-to-trial, such as in additive manufacturing. I am also interested in the use of networked robotics sensors and actuators, including the theory and application of cooperative control in multi-agent, dynamic consensus systems. I am a registered professional engineer (in the State of Idaho #7066), involved in several professional societies and editorial activities, and am interested in engineering education, particularly capstone senior design. As an administrator I focus on building new programs, particularly at the intersection of disciplines, and have a strong committment to diversity and inclusion. 

Note to Prospective Students: Due to my administrative duties, at this time I am no longer accepting new students into my research group.
