People in control

Rob Stengel, Martha Grover

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this issue of IEEE Control Systems Magazine (CSM), we speak with Robert Stengel, who is a professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University. Rob has worked on diverse applications in aircraft dynamics and control, and he has also contributed to biomedical applications, including cardiovascular monitoring and cancer detection. In 2002 he received the Ragazzini education award from the AACC as well as major awards from AIAA and the FAA. He is the author of numerous research papers and two books, including a classic text on optimal control reprinted by Dover and a recent textbook on flight dynamics published by Princeton University Press. We also speak with Martha (Gallivan) Grover, who is an assistant professor in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech. Martha works on modeling and identification for thin-film, polymer, and batch processing.
