    Anna's Biosketch

    Anna G. Stefanopoulou obtained her Diploma (1991, Nat. Tech. Univ. of Athens, Greece) in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering and her Ph.D. (1996, University of Michigan) in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. She is a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan. She was an assistant professor (1998-2000) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, a technical specialist (1996-1997) at Ford Motor Company and a visiting professor (2006) at ETH, Zurich.

    She is an ASME Fellow (08), and an IEEE Fellow (09), a member of the IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS) Board of Governors, an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Control System Technology, and an Associate Editor on the ASME Journal of Dynamic Systems Measurements and Control. She was Chair (2001-1999) and Co-Chair (1999-1997) of the Transportation Panel in American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) in the Dynamics, Systems, and Control Division (DCSD). She is a recipient of the 2009 Gustus L. Larson Memorial Award, a 2008 Univ. of Michigan Faculty Recognition award, the 2005 Outstanding Young Investigator by the ASME DSC division, a 2005 Henry Russel award, a 2002 Ralph Teetor SAE educational award, a 1997 NSF CAREER award and selected as one of the 2002 world’s most promising innovators from the MIT Technology Review. She has a book on Control of Fuel Cell Power Systems, nine US patents, 4 best paper awards and 120 publications. Her current work addresses the control and automation issues associated with fuel cells, fuel processing, and internal combustion engines.
