Kevin M. Passino





Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Director of the Humanitarian Engineering Center

Current Research:

  1. Interdisciplinary engineering-social sciences research on systems and feedback control theory/engineering, stability analysis, optimization, and game theory for human social, economic, and political systems; group dynamics and decision making (e.g., for communities); design and evaluation of complex, large scale, and distributed "sociotechnological" dynamical systems that involve groups of humans using technologies. Applications of all these to humanitarian engineering.
  2. Interdisciplinary engineering-biology research on distributed decision-making systems, with a special focus on honeybee social foraging, social choice, and swarm flight.
