About the Editors

Kamran Mohseni is professor and W.P. Bushnell endowed chair in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Florida in Gainesville. He is also the director of the Institute for Networked Autonomous Systems there. He earned his doctorate from the California Institute of Technology in mechanical engineering and his masters from Imperial College London in aeronautics and applied mathematics. His research interests include bio inspired unmanned aerial and underwater vehicles, vehicle system dynamics and control, mobile sensor networking, and fluid dynamics.

Rajat Mittal is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He earned his PhD in applied mechanics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his masters in aerospace engineering from the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. He was a postdoctoral researcher in the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford University before joining the University of Florida's Department of Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on computational fluid dynamics, low Reynolds number aerodynamics, biomedical flows, active flow control, biomimetics and bio inspired engineering, and fluid dynamics of locomotion.
