Jay A. Farrell received B.S. degrees (1986) in physics and electrical engineering from Iowa State University, and M.S. (1988) and Ph.D. (1989) degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Notre Dame. At Charles Stark Draper Lab (1989-1994), he was principal investigator on projects involving intelligent and learning control systems for autonomous vehicles. Dr. Farrell received the Engineering Vice President's Best Technical Publication Award in 1990, and Recognition Awards for Outstanding Performance and Achievement in 1991 and 1993. He is a Professor and former Chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Riverside. He has served as Vice President Finance and Vice President of Technical Activities for the IEEE Control Systems Society. He is a Fellow of the IEEE (2008) and author of over 150 technical publications. He is author of the book “Aided Navigation: GPS with High Rate Sensors” (McGraw-Hill 2008). He is also co-author of the books “The Global Positioning System and Inertial Navigation” (McGraw-Hill, 1998) and “Adaptive Approximation Based Control: Unifying Neural, Fuzzy and Traditional Adaptive Approximation Approaches” (John Wiley 2006).
