Shalom D. Ruben



I am an instructor in the <a href="">Mechanical Engineering&nbsp;department</a> at the&nbsp; <a href="">University of Colorado</a>&nbsp;at Boulder. &nbsp;Previously, I was a&nbsp;postdoctoral&nbsp;researcher in the <a href="">Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering department</a> at the&nbsp; <a href="">University of Colorado</a>. I graduated with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the <a href="">University of California, Los Angeles</a> (UCLA)&nbsp;in 2010.&nbsp; <br> <br>Research Interests <ul> <li>Design, Model, and Control of Mechatronics Systems</li> <li>Real-Time Embedded Optimization</li> <li>Applications of Optimization</li> <li>Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education</li> </ul> <p>I am interested in control and system theory. My focus is in design, modeling, and control of mechatronic systems. I am also interested in the application of convex optimization in mechatronics and the numerical implementation of solvers needed to attain a solution in real-time. I am especially interested in using robotics as a mechanism for technology education. &nbsp;Also I'm interested in K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) educational outreach.</p>
