Associate Professor Marco Carvalho, Department of Computer Science, obtained more than $220,000 for the university through three funded projects since just January 2012.
First, Carvalho received more than $123,000 from the Department of Defense for the design of advanced computer network systems capable of dynamically changing configuration and structure to deter cyber attacks. He is collaborating on this project with the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC).
Second, he was awarded by Rockwell Collins Inc. almost $66,000 to collaborate on the design of advanced new methods for cognitive networking and electronic warfare.
Third, he received nearly $32,000 for a project funded by the U.S. Air
Force Research Laboratory for work that has at its core designing, implementing
and testing new hybrid wireless emulation environments. This project is also in collaboration with the IHMC.
Carvalho is also affiliated with Florida Tech’s Human Center Design Institute, the IHMC and is a member of the Center for Applied Optimization at the University of Florida. He is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Part B.
