Professor Paulo Tabuada receives 2009 Eckman Award
Assistant Professor Paulo Tabuada has been selected to receive the prestigious 2009 Donald P. Eckman Award from the American Automatic Control Council. The award recognizes outstanding achievements by a young researcher under the age of 35 in the field of control theory. It is considered one of the most prestigious awards in the field.
Professor Tabuada joined the Electrical Engineering Department in July 2006. At UCLA he established and directs the Cyber-Physical Systems Laboratory. His main research interests include the design of networked embedded control systems; modeling, analysis and design of discrete-event, timed and hybrid systems; hierarchical and distributed control design; geometric and algebraic control theory for nonlinear and Hamiltonian control systems; and categorical systems theory. His group is also interested in the modeling, analysis and control of real-time, embedded, networked and distributed systems. Other research interests include geometrical nonlinear control and mathematical systems theory. He also received the 2005 NSF CAREER Award.
