• Act as a launch pad for conversations to tackle increasing technical challenges resulting from the rapidly growing demand for new capabilities and applications with regards to the smart grid, next-generation air transportation system, intelligent transportation systems, smart medical technologies, smart buildings and smart manufacturing
• Showcase PRECISE’s research on real-time systems, control design, sensing, security and applications
• Facilitate the exploration of funding opportunities for private companies, public institutions and other research-based organizations devoted to the development of Cyber-Physical Systems
• Develop an infrastructure for industry to connect with PRECISE to mutually benefit each other to address current and future trends
• Explore the potential for joint technical articles
• Explore the creation of testing and validation tools for distribution to industry AGENDA BREAKFAST & CHECK-IN 9 am - 9:30 am
Ari Brooks Professor of Surgery Chief, Endocrine and Oncologic Surgery Breast Center Director Pennsylvania Hospital Penn Medicine Dr. Brooks is a Surgical Oncologist practicing at the University of Pennsylvania. He has a special interest in translational engineering research, that is the application of new technologies to address problems in surgery and medicine. He has formed multiple successful collaborative teams in many areas of engineering including computer science, plasma physics, material science, electrical and mechanical engineering. He has co-authored 8 patent applications and these have led to 3 start-up companies, all with varied degrees of success. He enjoys mentoring engineering as well as medical students in the area of medical device development.
INVITED SPEAKERSMauricio Castillo-Effen Research Engineer General Electric Dr. Mauricio Castillo-Effen is a Research Engineer in the Controls, Electronics, and Signal Processing organization at the General Electric Global Research Center. His background is in control and estimation as applied to robotics, unmanned systems, and automation. He performs research for multiple customers within GE such as Aviation, Oil and Gas, and Transportation, as well as customers external to GE, like the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, and NASA. He is a member of GE’s Verification and Validation team that is focused on streamlining the development and certification of safety critical systems. He is also heavily involved in GE’s Robotics Initiative that seeks to leverage advances in robotics technologies to improve safety, productivity, and efficiency for GE and its customers.
Dr. Castillo-Effen’s current interests lie in the deployment of “smarter” machines and systems in real and unstructured environments considering multiple perspectives: technical, economic, commercial, social, etc. His expanded interest agenda includes formal analysis, Test and Evaluation, cyber-physical systems, model-based development, human factors, human-machine teaming, trusted autonomy, and ecosystem creation.
Besides his work at GE, Dr. Castillo-Effen is an adjunct faculty member of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a visiting Professor at Universidad Privada Boliviana. Dr. Castillo-Effen’s work has been published in the form of patents, academic publications at conferences, journals, and books. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of South Florida, a M.Sc. from the University of San Simon/TU Delft, and a B.Sc. from the University of Applied Sciences of Hannover—all in Electrical Engineering.
Paul L. Jones Senior Systems/Software Engineer U. S. Food and Drug Administration Paul Jones works at the U. S. Food and Drug Administration. He is a Senior Systems/Software Engineer in the Center for Devices and Radiological Health, Office of Science and Engineering Laboratories (OSEL) where he serves as an in-house consultant on regulatory matters involving medical device software system safety, software engineering, risk management, and safety/security assurance cases. He divides his time between transitioning high confidence software and systems (cyber-physical systems) research work into FDA’s regulatory science process and national and international standards development, and managing OSEL’s software lab.
Prior to joining FDA, Mr. Jones worked in industry for 20 years gaining extensive experience in systems/ software engineering developing business systems, operating systems, configuration management systems, and quality assurance systems.
Mr. Jones earned a MS degree in Computer Engineering from Loyola College in 1999 and BSE degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from the University of Michigan in 1974.
Stephen Magill Research Manager Galois, Inc.
Dr. Stephen Magill is a research lead in software security at Galois, Inc., where he is the principal investigator for Galois’ team on DARPA’s Cyber Fault-tolerant Attack Recovery project (CFAR). Prior to joining Galois in 2014, Stephen was a Research Scientist at the Institute for Defense Analyses Center for Computing Sciences (IDA/CCS).
Before that, he was a post-doctoral researcher with Michael Hicks at the University of Maryland, College Park.
His work has addressed software correctness, security, and robustness and spanned both dynamic and static approaches to software analysis.
Stephen earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University under the guidance of Peter Lee, Stephen Brookes, and John Reynolds. His thesis work centered on the use of separation logic to prove termination and other liveness properties of heap-manipulating programs. Current research interests include security and predictability of cyber-physical systems, reasoning under uncertainty, and formal aspects of privacy preservation.
Nicholas McGill Electromechanical Engineer Bresslergroup Nick McGill is an Electromechanical Engineer at Bresslergroup, a product design firm in Philadelphia. At Bresslergroup, Nick works on electronics in a range of fields - from wearables to medical devices. When he’s not capturing a schematic or routing a PCB, he’s writing firmware for embedded devices. Nick graduated from both undergraduate and Masters programs at the University of Pennsylvania in electrical, mechanical, and robotics engineering.
Paul Pazandak Research Manager Real-Time Innovations Paul leads RTI’s efforts to acquire and execute government-funded research. He also leads a team of computer scientists seeking to push the edge in the area of real-time complex distributed systems, data analytics & the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), and security. He has participated and has led government-funded and commercially-funded military research for over 15 years.
Jesse Walker Research Director Intel Jesse Walker is a member of Intel Lab’s Security and Privacy Research, and is the research director for security and privacy in cyberphysical systems. Dr. Walker’s previous role was Intel Corporation’s chief cryptographer from 2005 through 2015. Among his contributions are the discovery of the flaws in Wi-Fi WEP and creation of its successors WPA and WPA2, creation of the theory underlying Intel’s RDRAND instruction, co-designer of the anonymous attestation algorithm in TPM 2.0 and ISO 20009, and co-designer of SHA3 finalist Skein. Dr. Walker earned a Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1980.
