Dr. Athimoottil Mathew completed B.E.E in Electrical Engineering at Jadavapur University, Calcutta, India; his M.Tech. in Electrical Engineering (Control Systems) at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India and his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Queens University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada. His Ph.D. research focused on transfer function identification of multivariable dynamic systems.
After the undergraduate degree Dr. Mathew worked as a Junior Engineer in Kerala Electricity Board, India for about two years. His major responsibility was to design high voltage electric substations. He then worked as an electrical engineering faculty in engineering colleges at Trivandrum and Trichur, India. In these institutions, he held different positions including the position of Professor and Head of the Electrical Engineering department. From there he moved to Rochester Institute of Technology, where he is currently employed.
Dr. Mathew’s interest is in control system and its applications. That interest lead him to develop courses in Robotic Vision & Robotic Vision laboratory (NSF grant) as well as Fuzzy Logic Applications. He is currently focused on developing courses in renewable energy and electrical power system.
