Dr. Juan C. Cockburn received his B.S. in Electromechanical Engineering from the National University of Engineering in Lima, Peru, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota.  From August 1994 to July 1995 he was a Research Associate with the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), Minneapolis, Minnesota sponsored by Honeywell Technology Center, were he worked on practical algorithms to obtain minimal models of systems with uncertainty.  From 1995 to 2002 he was with the Department of Electrical Engineering of Florida State University.  His research focus was on the application of robust control of tracking systems in the aerospace, robotic s and process control industries.  After receiving tenure and promotion in 2002, he moved to the Rochester Institute of Technology where he is an Associate Professor of Computer Engineering.   Dr. Cockburn was a visiting scholar at the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University during the summer of 1998.  In the summers of 2000 and 2001, he held NRC Summer Faculty Fellowships at the Air Force Research Laboratories at Eglin Air Force Base, Fort Walton, Florida.  His research contributions have been in the area of robust control theory and uncertainty modeling. He has authored/co-authored more than forty technical papers.  Dr. Cockburn serves as a reviewer for multiple technical journals and conferences. He is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. He is currently interested in the application of robust control theory and uncertainty modeling to the economics of sustainability, 3D printing systems and computer vision.
