Sandipan Mishra

Associate Professor, Mechanical Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering

Professor Sandipan Mishra joined RPI’s faculty in the Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering Department in Fall 2010. He was a member of the 2010 Japan MEXT-NSF Young investigator exchange program for nanomanufacturing and the recipient of the NSF Early CAREER award in 2013 on additive manufacturing. His research interests are in the area of systems and control theory, learning control, nonlinear estimation, and precision mechatronics, as applied to additive manufacturing, smart building systems, unmanned aerial vehicles and adaptive optics. He is the PI of the ISAaC laboratory at RPI, which is supported by grants from government agencies including NSF, the DoD, and DoE, along with industrial partners including Hewlett Packard Labs, Sikorsky Inc, Mathworks Inc., National Instruments, Simmetrix, and Vivonics Inc. 

Professor Mishra's teaching portfolio includes Systems Analysis Techniques, Feedforward and Learning Algorithms, Advanced Manufacturing Systems and Processes, Mechatronics, Modeling and Control of Dynamical Systems, and Introduction to Engineering Analysis. He was the recipient of the Class of 1951 Teaching Award for 2015.
