Biography

Damoon Soudbakhsh is an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Temple University. He is also a Research Affiliate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has worked both in industry and academia and developed resilient and energy efficient transportation systems. He earned his PhD from The George Washington University, Washington DC in Transportation Safety. For his PhD, he worked on the development of several advanced control techniques for active safety vehicle systems including a steering-control collision avoidance system, and an intelligent speed adaptation system.

He was a member of Active Adaptive Controls Laboratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for four years. As a research scientist at MIT, he introduced algorithms for co-design of Cyber-Physical Systems with examples in variety of applications from automotive to power systems. In addition, he developed adaptive algorithms for fault detection and health monitoring of jet engine components.

Damoon Soudbakhsh is a recipient of Khwarizmi Young Award and Dwight Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship Award. He is an author of Handbook of Intelligent Vehicles and Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences. He was the Programs Chair of ASME-Boston section from 2015 to 2017.
