Ph.D., 1971, University of California
Aerospace design under uncertainty, modeling the effects of tests on structural design and safety, verification and validation of scientific simulations.
Ph.D., 1992, Louisiana State University
Development and application of laser-based diagnostic techniques (LIBS, Raman, Light scattering, LIF), laser-material and plasma-material interactions, aerosol analysis, laser-tissue interactions including laser ablation, dense-medium scattering, biophotonic-based sensing, combustion processes and emissions control including catalytic combustion, chemical kinetics and soot formation, solar-thermal chemistry and hydrogen generation, and heat and mass transfer in transient systems
Matthew Hale received his BSE summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania and received his MS and PhD from Georgia Tech. His work is driven by designing and analyzing multi-agent coordination algorithms that function well under challenging conditions, such as asynchronous information sharing, noisy communications, and user privacy requirements. His work deploys these algorithms on teams of flying and ground robots, providing both validation of the underlying theory and further research directions.…
Jeremy is originally from Pensacola, Florida, but has called Gainesville home for more than fifteen years. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Management from Santa Fe College in 2015 and his Master’s degree in Higher Education from the University of Florida in 2017. Jeremy worked in higher education for almost five years prior to joining the University of Florida in 2017; his professional specializations include admissions, advising, educational technology, and many other areas.…
Ryan Houim received his BSME from North Dakota State University and his MS and Ph.D. degrees from the Pennsylvania State University. He was a National Research Council post-doctoral fellow at the Naval Research Laboratory and a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland prior to joining the University of Florida. His research is focused on understanding the dynamics of multiphase and chemically reactive flows using numerical simulation techniques. …

Dr. Yong Huang is a professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Materials Science and Engineering. His research interests are two-fold: 1) processing of biological and engineering materials for healthcare/energy applications, and 2) understanding of dynamic material behavior during manufacturing and process-induced damage or defect structures. He served as the Technical Program Chair for the 2010 American Society of Mechanical Engineers International Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (ASME MSEC 2010) and the 2012 International Symposium on Flexible Automation (ISFA 2012).…
