Dr. Ilya Kolmanovsky has received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in aerospace engineering, and the M.A. degree in mathematics all from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1993, 1995, and 1995, respectively. He is presently a (full) professor in the department of aerospace engineering at the University of Michigan, with research interests in control theory for systems with state and control constraints, and in control applications to aerospace and automotive systems, including to engines, propulsion systems, and energy management. Dr. Kolmanovsky has previously been with Ford Research and Advanced Engineering in Dearborn, Michigan, for close to 15 years. He is a Fellow of IEEE and IFAC, a past recipient of the Donald P. Eckman Award of American Automatic Control Council, of two IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology Outstanding Paper Awards, of SICE Technology Award, and of several awards of Ford Research and Advanced Engineering. Dr. Kolmanovsky is a co-inventor of 104 United States patents on control algorithms to improve engine fuel economy and reduce emissions and has coauthored over 600 publications. He presently serves as a Senior Editor for IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology.
