Žefran Miloš

Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Illinois at Chicago

Miloš Žefran has been at the University of Illinois at Chicago since 1999 where he is currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and a B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, where he also received a M.S. in Electrical Engineering. He received a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania in 1995 and 1996, respectively. From 1997 to 1999 he was a National Science Foundation (NSF) Postdoctoral Scholar at the California Institute of Technology. He was on the faculty at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and held a visiting position at the University of Pisa, Italy. Dr. Žefran has received a NSF Career Award in 2001 and has been continuously supported by the NSF since.

Research Projects: Dr. Žefran’s research ranges from human-robot interaction. cyber-physical systems and robot networks to numerical optimal control, and haptics. Specific topics include human-robot interfaces for the elderly, distributed control of heterogeneous mobile sensor networks: real-time monitoring of cyber-physical systems with applications to automotive control and rehabilitation, model predictive control for switched and hybrid systems, and teaching of sensorimotor skills through haptics.
