Hossein Rastgoftar is currently an assistant professor in the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Arizona. Prior to this, he was an assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering at Villanova University and an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Michigan from 2020 to 2021. He was also an assistant research scientist (2017 to 2020) and a postdoctoral researcher (2015 to 2017) in the Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Drexel University in 2015 and has two MS degrees (one in Mechanical Systems and the other in Solid Mechanics) and a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering-Thermo-Fluids. Rastgoftar’s areas of interest span decision-making under uncertainty, human-robotic interaction, swarm robotics, system autonomy, UAS traffic management, intelligent transportation, formal specification and verification, and finite-state abstraction of dynamical systems.Show Less
