Claire Tomlin

For pioneering contributions to hybrid control systems and embedded software for real-time control, with application to air traffic control, avionics, and computational biology

Claire Tomlin received the Ph. D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1998. Since September 1998 she has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University, with a courtesy appointment in Electrical Engineering. She is a graduate fellow in the Division of Applied Sciences at Harvard University in 1994, and she has been a visiting researcher at NASA Ames Research Center during 1994-1998, at Honeywell Technology Center in 1997, and at the University of British Columbia in 1994.

Claire Tomlin is a recipient of the AIAA Outstanding Teacher Award, Stanford (2001), NSF Career Award, Stanford (1999), Terman Fellowship, Stanford (1998), the Bernard Friedman Memorial Prize in Applied Mathematics, Berkeley (1998), and the Zonta Amelia Earhart Award for Aeronautics Research (1996-98). She was an invited participant in the National Academy of Engineering¡¦s Frontiers of Engineering Program in 2002,and she is currently a member of DARPA¡¦s Information Systems and Technology (ISAT) study group. Her research interests are in hybrid systems,air traffic control automation, fight management system analysis and design,and modeling and analysis of biological cell networks.
