Research Laboratory – Marine Meteorology Division. He
was the corecipient of the Tammy Blair award for best student paper at FUSION 2016. His current interests include
multiobjective algorithms for dynamic scheduling and
resource management in weather-impacted environments.
His additional research foci include information valuation,
combining optimization techniques with deep learning,
and sailing vessel routing.
Adam Bienkowski received BS and MEng degrees in
electrical and computer engineering from the University of
Connecticut, Storrs, CT in 2013 and 2017, respectively, and
is currently pursuing the PhD degree with the Department
of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University
of Connecticut under the advisement of Dr. K. R. Pattipati.
He was an electrical engineer at General Dynamics Electric
Boat, Groton, CT from 2013 to 2017. His current research
interests include modeling dynamic and uncertain environments for asset allocation and path planning, context
aware decision support systems, and optimization and machine learning-based techniques for mission planning and
Lingyi Zhang received a BS degree in electrical and
computer engineering from the University of Connecticut,
Storrs, CT, USA, in 2014, where she is currently pursuing a PhD degree. Her current research interests include modeling dynamic and uncertain environments
for asset allocation and path planning, context-aware
decision support systems, and optimization-based techniques for mission planning and coordination. Zhang was
a corecipient of the Tammy Blair Award for Best Student
Paper at FUSION 2016.
Krishna R. Pattipati is the Board of Trustees Distinguished
Professor and the UTC Chair Professor of Systems Engineering in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, USA.
Pattipati's research activities are in the areas of proactive
decision support, autonomy, and optimization-based learning
and inference. A common theme among these applications
is that they are characterized by a great deal of uncertainty,
complexity, and computational intractability. He is a Life
Fellow of IEEE.
