  • Cameron Nowzari

    Cameron Nowzari is currently an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at George Mason University. He received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in June 2009 from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and his Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences in Sept 2013 from the University of California, San Diego.

    Dr. Nowzari's research interests are in the broad area of dynamics, controls, and robotics. More specifically, he is interested in the analysis and control of complex distributed and/or networked systems and spreading processes. A large motivation for the specific problems include minimizing energy or wireless communication, efficient computation of control strategies or decisions, and the use of sparse sensing and/or control. His work has applications in a wide number of areas including mobile sensors, autonomous robots, allocation of resources, public health and epidemiology, network protection, and marketing campaigns.
