Dr. Vukica Jovanovic is an Assistant Professor of Engineering Technology in Mechanical Engineering Technology Program. She holds a Ph.D. from Purdue University in Mechanical Engineering Technology, focus on Digital Manufacturing. Her research is focused on mechatronics, digital manufacturing, digital thread, cyber physical systems, broadening participation, and engineering education. She is a Co-Director of Mechatronics and Digital Manufacturing Lab at ODU and a lead of Area of Specialization Mechatronics Systems Design. She worked as a Visiting Researcher at Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing in Disputanta, VA on projects focusing on digital thread and cyber security of manufacturing systems. She has funded research in broadening participation efforts of underrepresented students in STEM funded by Office of Naval Research, focusing on mechatronic pathways. She is part of the ONR project related to the additive manufacturing training of active military. She is also part of the research team that leads the summer camp to nine graders that focus on broadening participation of underrepresented students into STEM (ODU BLAST).
Dr. Karina Arcaute received her BS in Chemical Engineering from the Instituto Tecnologico de Chihuahua, and her MS (Mechanical Engineering) and PhD (Materials Science and Engineering) from the University of Texas at El Paso.
Dr. Michel Albert Audette received the B.Eng. (Electrical) degree from McGill University, in 1986, the M.Eng. degree (Electrical) from Ecole Polytechnique in 1993, and the Ph.D. (Biomedical Engineering) from McGill in 2002, all in Montreal, Canada. His industry experience includes flight simulation from 1986 to 1988, welding automation from 1991 to 1994, neurosurgical navigation (part-time) from 1995-1997, as well as open-source image analysis software from 2008 to 2011. He also did postdoctoral research at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Tsukuba, Japan from 2001-2005 and at Innovation Center Computer Assisted Surgery (ICCAS) in Leipzig, Germany from 2006-2008. He has patents in US and Japan on surgery planning. Since July 2011, he has been employed as assistant professor in Old Dominion University's Department of Modeling, Simulation and Visualization Engineering. His research interests include medical simulation, medical image analysis, therapy planning, all three with an emphasis on neuro- and orthopedic surgery, as well as other clinical applications of musculoskeletal modeling, in addition to imaging and simulation applications for military well-being.
Dr. Anthony W. Dean . His appointments include Professor of Engineering Technology and as Interim Associate Dean of Graduate and Undergraduate Studies for the Batten College of Engineering and Technology at Old Dominion University
