As we enter the new age of robotic and intelligent machines, what will be the future of machine invention and the role of dynamics and control? Dr. Harry Dankowicz, professor of mechanical science and engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, talks about currents trends in multibody systems, nonlinear dynamics, and control.
Dr. Dankowicz graduated from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, with a M.Sc. in engineering physics in 1991 and, subsequently, from Cornell University with a Ph.D. in theoretical and applied Mechanics in 1995. He has served the ASME community in several capacities, including as founding associate editor of the ASME Journal of Computational and Nonlinear Dynamics and as technical program co-chair for the 2009 and 2011 International Design Engineering Technical Conference & Computers and Information in Engineering Conference (IDETC/CIE) meetings.
