Nuno Martins promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure

University of Maryland President Wallace Loh has approved the promotion of Nuno Martins (ECE/ISR) to the rank of Associate Professor with tenure.

Martins earned a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, minor in Mathematics, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2004.

In December, Martins won the 2010 George Axelby Outstanding Paper Award from the IEEE Control Systems Society. This prestigious award is given annually to the outstanding paper published in IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control. Martins shared the award with Munther Dahleh of MIT for their jointly authored paper, "Feedback Control in the Presence of Noisy Channels: Bode-Like Fundamental Limitations of Performance."

He also won the ISR Outstanding Faculty Award in 2010, a National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2007, and the 2006 American Automatic Control Council O. Hugo Schuck Award.

Martins currently is the principal investigator of a three-year, $1.5 million National Science Foundation grant for Ant-Like Microrobots—Fast, Small, and Under Control. Co-PIs are Associate Professor Pamela Abshire (ECE/ISR), Associate Professor Elisabeth Smela (ME), and Assistant Professor Sarah Bergbreiter (ME/ISR).

Martins heads the Distributed Decision Theory Group and the CPS & Cooperative Autonomy Laboratory. His interests are in control theory, estimation and information theory.
