Adrian Stoica
Group Supervisor, Senior Research Scientist
(Full description>>)

Biography (more>>)
Adrian has over twenty years of R&D experience in autonomous systems, developing novel adaptive, learning and evolvable hardware techniques and embedding them into electronics and intelligent information systems, for applications ranging from measurement equipment to space avionics to robotics.

Education (more>>)
- PhD, Electrical Engineering, Victoria University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia, 1996, (Thesis in robot learning: "Motion learning by robot apprentices- a fuzzy neural approach")
- MS, Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Iasi, Romania, 1986

Professional Experience (more>>)
- R&D since 1986, at JPL since 1996. Lead a variety of research projects for NASA, DARPA, USAF, DTAO, BMDO, etc., developing new technology solutions in areas ranging from evolvable hardware for survivable systems to humanoid robots for planetary surface operations.
- Principal (2002), Senior Research Scientist (2007), Group Supervisor (2008).
