Jane Shin is an assistant professor in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of Florida. She received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University and the B.S. degree in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering from Seoul National University.
During her PhD, she closely collaborated with the Naval Surface Warfare Center at Panama City (NSWC PCD) on developing novel information-driven sensor path planning algorithms for underwater multi-target classification using side-scan sonar sensors. Her expertise is in developing sensor path planning algorithms based on information theory and machine learning methods applied to underwater acoustic imagery. She also has expertise in developing computationally efficient path planning algorithms based on computational geometry. She was selected as a Commercialization Fellow at Cornell in 2020.
