Dr. Fillia Makedon is the Jenkins-Garrett Professor at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). She received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from Northwestern University in 1982. Between 1991-2006, she was Professor of computer science at Dartmouth College where she founded and directed the Dartmouth Experimental Visualization Laboratory (DEVLAB). Between 2006 and 2014 she served as the department chair of the CSE Department at UTA. Prior to that , in 2005-2006, she was Program Director at the National Science Foundation. Prior to Dartmouth, Prof. Makedon was Assistant and Associate Professor at the Univ. of Texas at Dallas (UTD), where she founded and directed the Computer LEArning Research Center (CLEAR). She supervised over 27 Ph.D. theses and numerous Masters Degree theses. Makedon has received many NSF research awards in the areas of trust management, brain computing, data mining, parallel computing, visualization, knowledge management, cyberphysical systems, major research instrumentation, and cyberhuman systems, to name a few. She has been senior investigator and co-PI of NIH, DOJ and Foundation grants. She received the Dartmouth Senior Research Professor Award, three Fulbright awards, and is author of over 350 peer-reviewed research publications. She is faculty affiliate of the Dartmouth ISTS security institute and currently directs the HERACLEIA Human Centered Laboratory, that develops pervasive technologies for human monitoring. She is member of several journal editorial boards and chair of the international PETRA conference (petrae.org). She currently supervises 12 Ph.D. students, several undergraduates and MS students.
|Current Principal Fields of Study
|| Prof. Makedon directs the Heracleia Human Centered Computing Lab (ERB 313) and the Motion Capture Lab (ELB 328). In her work, she uses computational approaches to build innovations for real world applications (e.g., healthcare, vocational safety, manufacturing, training, rehabilitation, and others). Students in the course will have access to both labs and also have the opportunity to interact with local industry through the iPerform industry-university center.
