Ph.D. University of California, San Diego, 1985
Electronic Systems and Systems Controls
Before joining the faculty at UC San Diego, he was a researcher at the NASA
Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, where he
worked on the development of intelligent telerobotic systems for use in
space exploration and satellite servicing and repair.
Dr. Kreutz-Delgado's technical contributions include the development of a
spatial operator algebra for the analysis and control of complex, multibody
systems; the application of nonlinear dynamical reduction for robust
sensory-motor control of multilimbed robotic systems; and the use of
differential topology for the development of trainable nonlinear
representations for sensory-motor control.
His interest in sensor-based intelligent systems that can function in
unstructured and nonstationary environments is the basis for research
activities in the areas of nonlinear dynamics and control; adaptive
sensory-motor control; multibody systems theory; learning theory and pattern
recognition; computational vision; and data compression.
