Dr. Yutao He is Sr. Technologist in the Advanced Computer Systems & Technologies group at JPL, leading research in developing advanced avionics technology for future spacecraft and space missions. He is adjunct faculty at UCLA and CSULA. He received his B.E. in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from UCLA.
Dr. Jean-Pierre de la Croix is a Robotics Systems Engineer in the Robotic Systems Estimation, Decision, and Control group. He joined JPL after completing a Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2015. His research focused on new control techniques for large-scale robotic systems, such that humans can easily and effectively interact with these complex systems. At JPL, he continues to work on multi-agent robotics for new and challenging applications.
Dr. Chris Mattmann is a member of the Instrument Software and Science Data Systems section at JPL where he is responsible for influencing science data system designs and facilitating the infusion of new technologies to meet our future challenges. Dr. Mattmann has conceived, realized and delivered the architecture for the next generation of reusable science data processing systems for a number of NASA science missions at JPL. Mattmann spends his time contributing to open source software as a Director at the Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/), and is the progenitor of the Apache Tika (http://tika.apache.org/) framework, the digital "babel fish" and de-facto content analysis and detection framework that exists. In addition, Dr. Mattmann is an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Southern California (USC). He received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Southern California.
Dr. Darmindra Arumugam is a Senior Research Technologist at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology. He is an expert in applied electromagnetics with present focus in radar imaging and sounding systems, localization systems, atmospheric and ionospheric/plasma science, quasistatic fields, and wireless power transfer. Dr. Arumugam has supervised and acted as principal investigator in activities related to electromagnetic concept development – focused on low TRL concepts with high impact in space applications. The group led by Dr. Arumugam consists of 5 engineers and technologists, and additional 2-4 students per year. Dr. Arumugam received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. He is the first author of over 50 articles in journals and conferences, and holds 2 major patents in magnetoquasistatic sensing and 1 patent in surface acoustic ranging devices.
