Joseph Mueller has taught courses at the AEM department as an adjunct professor since 2004. He is currently a Senior Research Scientist at SIFT - Smart Information Flow Technologies - here in Minneapolis. At SIFT, he is supporting several projects that involve autonomous planning for UAVs, active perception for cyber defense, statistical model checking for hybrid systems, and the certification of adaptive and intelligent control systems. Prior to joining SIFT, he worked at Princeton Satellite Systems for 13 years and served as the principal investigator for several Small Business Innovative Research projects. In this role he developed algorithms for optimal guidance and control of both formation flying spacecraft and high altitude airships, and developed a course of action planning tool for DoD communication satellites. Dr. Muellers research interests include robust optimal control, adaptive control, trajectory optimization, and intelligent systems to enable autonomous operations.
