Study, learn and creatively solve intriguing problems utilizing strong industry and academic strengths in physics, engineering and computer science.
Dr. Aaron J. Radke received degrees in Computer Science, a BA in Physics, and a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2001 from Cleveland State University Summa Cum Laude. He obtained industry experience at Western Enterprises, and consulting work experience in circuit design, embedded system design and software development. Later, he received a MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2002 from CSU where he combined his interests in physics, computer science and electrical engineering in control theory by creating a computer assisted control design platform. In 2006, he received a Doctorate in Engineering while working on a unique disturbance observer for control system health monitoring.
Strengths and interests include physics, mathematics, computer science, computer architecture, UNIX operating systems, embedded systems, algorithms, control system theory, observer design, software engineering, and computer languages.
Research grants included digital control algorithms for NASA and advanced control algorithm development and implementation for the Center for Advanced Control Technologies. Publications have dealt with observer design variants with a focus on disturbance observers for advanced control algorithms.
He has worked in industry with many high profile government research organizations including NASA, DOD, and Lockheed Martin.
