Ilya V. Kolmanovsky received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Michigan in 1995 and is currently a Technical Leader in Powertrain Control R&A Department at Ford Research & Advanced Engineering of Ford Motor Company, Dearborn, Michigan. He leads a team of controls engineers and specialists responsible for control system development within larger, cross-functional, "game-changing" powertrain technology development programs. He has served as an Associate Editor of IEEE CSS Conference Editorial Board (1997-1999), IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology (2002-2004), IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control (2005-present) and he was a Program Committee Member of 1997, 1999 and 2004 American Control Conferences. Dr. Kolmanovsky was a recipient of 2002 Donald P. Eckman award of American Automatic Control Council for contributions to nonlinear control and for pioneering work in automotive engine control of powertrain systems, and of 2002 IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology outstanding paper award. In addition to his main area of expertise in the automotive engine and powertrain control, Dr. Kolmanovsky's research interests are in the potential of advanced control techniques as an enabling technology for advanced automotive systems, and in several areas of control theory including control of systems with constraints, optimization-based & model-predictive control, and control of nonlinear, mechanical, nonholonomic, and underactuated systems.
