Meet the team!

Meet the hard working people making MABL what it is today.

Director

  • Dr. Ferat Sahin

    Dr. Ferat Sahin received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. In September 2000, he joined Rochester Institute of Technology, where he is a Professor. His current research interests are System of Systems Simulation and Modeling, Swarm Intelligence, Robotics, MEMS Materials Modeling, MEMS-based Microrobots, Micro Actuators, Distributed Computing, Decision Theory, Pattern Recognition, Distributed Multi-agent Systems, and Structural Bayesian Network Learning. In addition to conference and journal publications in these areas, he is also the co-author of two books: “Experimental and Practical Robotics” and “Intelligent Control Systems with an Introduction to System of Systems Engineering” by CRC Press. Dr. Sahin has been a reviewer for leading journals and conferences in both the IEEE and other organizations. He serves as the Deputy Editor-in-Chief for International Journal of Computers and Electrical Engineering and as an Associate Editor for IEEE Systems Journal and AutoSoft Journal. He is a member of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society, Robotics and Automation Society, and Computational Intelligence Society.
