Dr. Havens is the Associate Dean for Research in the College of Computing and William and Gloria Jackson Associate Professor in Computer Science, and directs the Institute of Computing and Cybersystems (ICC), the ICC Center for Data Sciences, and the PRIME Lab. He is an affiliated professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. Prior to joining Michigan Tech in 2012, Tim was an NSF/CRA Computing Innovation Fellow at Michigan State University (MSU) and a Research Associate at the University of Missouri (MU). At MSU, Dr. Havens developed machine-learning methods for clustering in large heterogeneous data sets. His work at MU focused on multi-modal data fusion and detection algorithms and fuzzy clustering. Before working on his PhD, he was an Associate Technical Staff at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, where he analyzed airborne directed energy systems, laser-illuminated target ID systems, and GPS signals in support of the U.S. Air Force. His interests include mobile robotics, explosive hazard detection, heterogeneous and big data, fuzzy sets, sensor networks, and data fusion. He has coauthored over 140 technical publications and is Conference Publications Editor of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society and an Associate Editor of the IEEE Trans. Fuzzy Systems.
