Ilya Kolmanovsky studied as an undergraduate at Moscow Aviation Institute in Russia. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Aerospace Engineering in 1993 and 1995, respectively, and his M.A. in Mathematics in 1995, all from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. In 1996 Dr. Kolmanovsky joined Ford Research Laboratory of Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan as a Technical Specialist. At Ford he has been conducting research on control, modeling and systems development of advanced technology automotive gasoline and diesel powertrains, and is presently a Staff Technical Specialist. Dr. Kolmanovsky has also made contributions to nonlinear control of non-holonomic systems with applications to multi-body spacecraft, nonlinear control of systems with pointwise-in-time state and control constraints, control of systems with complex dynamics, including switching systems, stochastic systems, systems with delays and systems described by partial differential equations.
Dr. Kolmanovsky has published over a hundred conference and journal articles in the areas of control and automotive systems technology. He holds nineteen U.S. patents. Dr. Kolmanovsky has served in the past as an Associate Editor of IEEE Control Systems Society Conference Editorial Board and was a program committee member of two American Control Conferences. He is presently serving as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology.
