The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering extends a warm welcome to Dr. David Soloveichik and Dr. Milos Gligoric, who join the department beginning Fall 2015.
Dr. Soloveichik was a Fellow at the Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology at the University of California, San Francisco before he joined Texas ECE as an Assistant Professor. He received his undergraduate and Masters degree from Harvard University in Computer Science. He completed his PhD degree in Computation and Neural Systems at the California Institute of Technology, where his dissertation was awarded the Milton and Francis Clauser Doctoral Prize (for the best PhD thesis). His scientific area of interest is Molecular Programming: the engineering of complex molecular systems for synthetic biology, nanotechnology, and bioengineering.
Dr. Gligoric also joined Texas ECE as an Assistant Professor this Fall. He has a PhD from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received his Masters degree in Software Engineering at the School of Electrical Engineering from the University of Belgrade in Serbia. His research interests are software engineering and formal methods with a focus on improving software quality via software testing and software model checking.
