MATLAB Academic Tour 2018 UAE
The seminar will showcase how to bridge the gap between theory and practice when it comes to using MATLAB. It will help you learn how to program and build models with the MATLAB product family. You will also gain valuable experience in MATLAB, which is among the top required skills listed in engineering and science job postings.
Speaker: Paul Huxel, PhD, Senior Application Engineer, MathWorks Ireland
Dr. Huxel holds a BS and MS in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a minor in applied mathematics and a graduate concentration in orbital mechanics, attitude dynamics, and control. He also holds a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin where he worked as a research assistant for a Goddard Space Flight Center project that culminated in his dissertation: “Navigation Algorithms and Observability Analysis for Formation Flying Missions.” He then spent five years with Draper Laboratory developing algorithms and simulations to perform system analysis, calibration and verification for US Navy and NASA programs. Dr. Huxel spent the next three years with Sierra Nevada Corporation as the GN&C Orbital Phase Lead for the Dream Chaser program overseeing ISS rendezvous trajectory design and simulation, mission constraint analysis and propellant estimation, and navigation sensor requirements and hardware selection. After more than 15 years using MATLAB and Simulink in academia and industry, he took a 15-month sabbatical as a Peace Corps volunteer to teach math and physics at a secondary school in a rural village in Cameroon, Africa. Paul joined the Application Engineering Group at MathWorks in Galway, Ireland in August 2017.
