The Maryland Robotics Center welcomes four new faculty affiliates:

Bill Regli is the director of the Institute for Systems Research and a professor in ISR and the Department of Computer Science. He is a University of Maryland alumnus, having earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1995. Regli is highly interdisciplinary with interests and contributions span several computer science and engineering fields (artificial intelligence, solid modeling and graphics, CAD/CAM, integration science, mechanical design and wireless networks).

Dinesh Manocha is a Phi Delta Theta/Mason Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a visiting professor in both computer science and electrical and computer engineering at the University of Maryland. Manocha earned his Ph.D. in computer science at the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests include geometric and solid modeling, interactive computer graphics and robotics.

Yasser Shoukry is an assistant professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland. He earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles where he was affiliated with both the Cyber-Physical Systems Lab as well as the Networked and Embedded Systems Lab. Shoukry's research interests include design and implementation of resilient cyber-physical systems. He draws on tools from embedded systems, formal methods, control theory and machine learning.

Ryan Sochol is an assistant professor in Mechanical Engineering and the Fischell Department of Bioengineering at the University of Maryland. He earned his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. Sochol's research interests include micro/nanoscale 3D printing and advanced manufacturing, physiological and biophysical biomimicry, cell mechanobiology and physicobiology and integrated microfluidic processors.
