Dr. Dan DeLaurentis
Dr. Inseok Hwang
Congratulations to Dr. Daniel DeLaurentis and Dr. Inseok Hwang who have both been promoted to Associate Professor and to Dr. Barrett Caldwell (By Courtesy) who has been promoted to full Professor.

Dr. Daniel DeLaurentis has been with Purdue University's School of Aeronautics and Astronautics since 2004 as an Assistant Professor. He received his Ph.D. from the Georgia institute of Technology in 1998. His areas of interest include: Design Methods: Mathematical modeling and object-oriented frameworks for the design of system-of systems, especially those for which air vehicles are a main element; approaches for robust design, including robust control analogies and uncertainty modeling/management in multidisciplinary design Aerospace Systems and Flight Vehicles: sizing/synthesis algorithms for design & performance estimation of revolutionary flight vehicles; exploration of Personal Air Vehicle designs and concept of operations; aircraft flight stability and control, especially as an integral part of conceptual design

Dr. Inseok Hwang has been with Purdue University's School of Aeronautics and Astronautics since 2004 as an Assistant Professor. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2004. His areas of interest include: Hybrid Systems/Nonlinear Systems: Analysis: stability and control of hybrid systems; Estimation: state estimation for hybrid systems; Information Inference: system identification for hybrid systems; approximate reachable set computation for various dynamical systems Air Traffic Control: Target tracking and identity management, and conflict detection and resolution; Safe interface design; Real-time safety verification tools for safety critical systems Other applications: Biological systems; sensor networks; decentralized estimation and control of large scale interconnected dynamical systems.

Dr. Barrett Caldwell has been with Purdue University's School of Industrial Engineering since 2000. He became a Courtesy Appointed Professor in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 2007. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California-Davis in Social Psychology in 1990. His areas of interest include: Human factors engineering; Distributed human supervisory control; Team coordination and performance using information technology.
