Professor Panagiotis Christofides is Named AAAS Fellow
Professor Panagiotis Christofides is named American Association of Advancement of Science (AAAS) Fellow. He was honored for "the development of rigorous methods for analysis and control of nonlinear, hybrid and distributed parameter processes." His research interests are in the areas of control, dynamics and optimization, including both theory and applications; computational process modeling and simulation; and applied mathematics. His laboratory seeks to develop new methods for the systematic and rigorous solution of complex process-control and systems-engineering problems. He is a professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and of Electrical Engineering at UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science.
