P. S. Krishnaprasad
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Institute for Systems Research
University of Maryland at College Park

P. S. Krishnaprasad received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1977. He has been with the University of Maryland since August, 1980, where he has held the position of Professor of Electrical Engineering since 1987, and a joint appointment with the Institute for Systems Research since 1988. He is also a member of the Applied Mathematics Faculty. Krishnaprasad's research interests lie in the broad area of geometric control theory and its applications. In the last several years, his interests have drawn him to problems of modeling, design, motion planning and control arising in mobile robotics (legged and wheeled vehicles, autonomous underwater vehicles and autonomous aircraft); geometric methods in nonlinear dynamics; wavelet analysis for signals and systems; and, intelligent control architectures, in part inspired by biological paradigms such as central patterns generators and neural networks.
