Dr. Mark Bryden is the founding director of the Simulation, Modeling and Decision Science program at Ames Laboratory and is a professor of mechanical engineering at Iowa State University. Dr. Bryden’s research is focused on the federation of information from disparate sources (e.g., models, data, and other information elements) to create detailed models of engineered, human, and natural systems that enable engineering decision making for these complex systems. Dr. Bryden has published more than 180 peer-reviewed articles and co-authored the textbook Combustion Engineering. He has founded two successful startups based on his research work, and he has founded the nonprofit ETHOS, a community of 150+ researchers focused on meeting the needs for clean village energy in the developing world. He has received three patents, three R&D 100 awards, two Regional Excellence in Technology Transfer awards, and a National Excellence in Technology Transfer award. In 2013 he and his coauthors received the ASME Melville Medal. His professional experience includes three years as an engineer and 11 years as a manager at Westinghouse Electric in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In addition, for more than 15 years Professor Bryden has worked on energy systems for the poor in a number of developing countries.
Dr. Turqueti is currently a Research Engineer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology.
Author or co-author of over 100 publications, his research interests are in the areas of electronics and signal processing for harsh environments especially those operating at high levels of radiation, cryogenic temperatures, or high magnetic fields. He works on projects funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) office of science, and by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).
Previously he worked at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) whereas an engineer he developed and researched electronics and signal processing algorithms for the CDF and D0 experiments. Dr.Turqueti lead at Fermilab the integration efforts for the US-CMS forward pixel detector.
In the private sector, Dr.Turqueti served as vice-president of technology at Creative Electron Inc, where he was the principal investigator and technical manager for several radiation detection projects for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and DOE.
His professional activities included serving on a variety of advisory panels, conference committees, and as a reviewer for DOE Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), and several journals, including IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science and IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity.
