Prof. Panagiotis Christofides is named AAAS Fellow
Christofides, a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and of electrical engineering at UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, 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.
In October 2012, the AAAS Council elected 701 members as Fellows of AAAS. These individuals will be recognized for their contributions to science and technology at the Fellows Forum to be held on 16 February 2013 during the AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. The new Fellows will receive a certificate and a blue and gold rosette as a symbol of their distinguished accomplishments.
