Biography of Pieter J. Mosterman

Pieter J. Mosterman PIETER J. MOSTERMAN is Chief Research Scientist and Director of the Advanced Research & Technology Office of MathWorks in Natick, MA where he works on computational modeling, simulation, and code generation technologies. He also holds an Adjunct Professor position at the School of Computer Science of McGill University. Before, he was a Research Associate at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen. He has a Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, and a M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Twente, Netherlands. His primary research interests are in Computer Automated Multiparadigm Modeling (CAMPaM) with principal applications in design automation, training systems, and fault detection, isolation, and reconfiguration.

Dr. Mosterman designed the Electronics Laboratory Simulator that was nominated for The Computerworld Smithsonian Award by Microsoft Corporation in 1994. In 2003, he was awarded the IMechE Donald Julius Groen Prize for his paper on the hybrid bond graph modeling and simulation environment HYBRSIM. In 2009, he received the Distinguished Service Award of The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS) for his services as Editor-in-Chief of SIMULATION: Transactions of SCS.

Dr. Mosterman was Guest Editor for special issues on CAMPaM of SIMULATION, IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology (TCST), and ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation. He is on the Editorial Advisory Board of SIMULATION and a CRC Press Series Editor for books on Computational Analysis, Synthesis, and Design of Dynamic Systems. He has chaired over thirty scientific events, served on over a hundred International Program Committees, published over a hundred peer reviewed papers, is inventor on over a hundred awarded patents, and is Editor of books on Model-Based Design for Embedded Systems, Discrete-Event Modeling and Simulation: Theory and Applications, Model-Based Testing for Embedded Systems, Real-time Simulation Technologies: Principles, Methodologies, and Applications, and Computation for Humanity: Information Technology to Advance Society.

Dr. Mosterman always wanted to pretend to be an architect.
