Anthony A. Maciejewski
Anthony A. Maciejewski received the BSEE (summa cum laude), M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering in 1982, 1984, and 1987, respectively, all from The Ohio State University under the support of an NSF Graduate Fellowship. From 1985 to 1986, he was an American Electronics Association Japan Research Fellow at the Hitachi Central Research Laboratory in Tokyo, Japan, where he performed work on the development of parallel processing algorithms for computer graphic imaging and simulation. In 1988, he joined the faculty of Purdue University as an Assistant Professor of electrical engineering, and he was promoted to the position of Associate Professor in 1993 and Full Professor in 1998. In 2001, he joined the Colorado State University, where he works currently as a Professor and Head of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research and teaching interests are centered on the analysis, simulation, and control of kinematically redundant robotic systems. His current work focuses on how kinematic redundancy can be utilized to design failure tolerant robotic systems for remote operations. His research has been supported by NSF, Sandia National Laboratories, DARPA, NASA, National Imagery and Mapping Agency, Missile Defense Agency, Nonlethal Technology Innovation Center, NEC, Caterpillar, AT&T, H-P, Intel, Wolf Robotics, and the TRW Foundation. He has served on the editorial boards for the IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (Part A), Intelligent Automation and Soft Computing, Pattern Analysis and Applications, and International Journal of Robotics and Automation. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, and he has served as the Vice President for Financial Activities, AdCom Member, and Secretary for its Robotics and Automation Society. He served as the Technical Program Cochair for the 1997 International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), Technical Program Chair for ICRA 2002, and he has served on over 60 other program committees.
