Miroslav Pajic is the Dickinson Family Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University. He also holds a secondary appointment in the Computer Science Department, and the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Material Science. His research interests focus on the design and analysis of high-assurance cyber-physical systems with varying levels of autonomy and human interaction, at the intersection of (more traditional) areas of AI, learning and controls, embedded systems, robotics and formal methods.
Dr. Pajic received various awards including the NSF CAREER Award, ONR Young Investigator Program Award, ACM SIGBED Early-Career Researcher Award, IEEE TCCPS Early-Career Award, IBM Faculty Award, ACM SIGBED Frank Anger Memorial Award, the Joseph and Rosaline Wolf Dissertation Award from Penn Engineering, as well as eight Best Paper and Runner-up Awards, such as the Best Paper Awards at the 2017 ACM SIGBED International Conference on Embedded Software (EMSOFT) and 2014 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS), and the Best Student Paper award at the 2012 IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS). He is an associate editor in the ACM Transactions on Cyber-Physical Systems and ACM Transactions Computing for Healthcare (ACM HEALTH), and was a Chair of the 2019 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS’19).
