He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from the Instituto SuperiorTécnico in 2007 and 2009, respectively.  He was a postdoctoral researcher in General Robotics, Automation, Sensing & Perception Laboratory (GRASP lab) at University of Pennsylvania from 2014-2017.
  • RPI ISE Ph.D. student Aaron Rowen has accepted the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Science, Mathematics, And Research for Transformation (SMART) fellowship. Aaron’s work will be sponsored by the US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR).   
  • The US Patent Number 9,655,564 titled Use of machine learning for classification of magneto cardiograms was granted on May 23, 2017 to Dr. Karsten Sternickel of Germany, Prof. Mark Embrechts of RPI (ISY) and Prof. Boleslaw Szymanski of RPI (NeST).  The patent is for the use of machine learning for pattern recognition in magnetocardiography (MCG). Magnetocardiography measures magnetic fields emitted by the electrophysiological activity of the heart and does not involve any radiation.
  • To most Americans, the NSA is an organization shrouded in secrecy, where the most clandestine of operations are carried out in the name of national security. Dr. Thomas Willemain, successful software entrepreneur and statistics professor, spent the equivalent of three years alternating between his life “outside” and working “inside” at the NSA and an affiliated, shadowy think tank. Once inside, Dr. Willemain would be challenged to adjust to life in an intense, complex and sometimes alien organization, while also encountering brilliant and quirky colleagues, the moral challenges of wielding math and statistics as weapons, a charming (if kitschy) gift shop, and ultimately, some of the most rewarding time of his career. A deeply personal account of the years spent within the most secretive organization in the world, Working on the Dark Side of the Moon explores the range of emotions an outsider experiences while crossing over to the “inside.” It also shows the positive side of an Agency whose secrecy hides dedicated men and women devoted to protecting the country while honoring the Constitution.  “A delightful rarity… Puts a human face on the people who work in this secret world: their character, motivations, frustrations, sense of humor. A personal account of the years spent within NSA, exploring the range of emotions an outsider experiences while crossing over to the ‘inside’. Shows the whimsical, endearing side of the Agency whose secrecy hides dedicated men and women devoted to protecting the country while honoring the constitution.” -- Journal of U.S. Intelligence Studies “Tom portrays the culture in living color. His reminiscences are not only charming, they are insightful.” -- Dr. Gregory Treverton, former Chair, National Intelligence Council “A fascinating and delightfully personal look at ‘No Such Agency.’” -- Professor Christopher Moran, Warwick University, UK “A remarkably honest and personal narrative. I have not seen any other unclassified source that puts such a human face on this important work.” -- Dr. Lee Neuwirth, former Deputy Director, Institute for Defense Analyses Communications Division
