Biography

Dr Haas is Reader in Applied Control Systems, and coordinator of the medical technology applications within the Control Theory and Applications Centre. His main research interest lies in the application of systems modelling, control, imaging and computing techniques to radiotherapy physics and intelligent transportation systems. He has been the principal investigator and work package leader for a 5.5 year EU FP6 project and co-investigator in EPSRC, TSB, TCS/KTP and industry funded projects.

Dr Haas has been reviewer of research applications for French Plan Cancer (since 2009) and EPSRC (since 2012). International Programme committee member for: CompSens 2012 and 2013, chair of local organising committee for UK Automatic Control Council (UKACC) International Conference on CONTROL 2010 and the International Conference series on Systems Engineering (ICSE), with Wroclaw and University of Nevada, Las Vegas, USA. He has also been the special session co-organiser at 14th International IEEE Annual Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSC 2011), Washington USA and UKACC CONTROL 2010.

As well as this, he has been a reviewer for IFAC, IEEE, Elsevier and Institute of Physics journals. Member of International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) technical committees: Biological and Medical Systems, Computational Intelligence in Control. He has over 15 years’ experience as a lecturer, researcher and consultant for industrial organisations. He has authored and co-authored over 150 scientific and technical papers, chapters and books and has successfully supervised 10 PhD students.

He believes in the use of industry standards software and tools in research and teaching. He has used software including MATLAB, Simulink, Stateflow, LabVIEW and SCADE together with hardware from National Instruments and ANSYS-SCADE to solve applied research problems in aerospace, railways, automotive, medical and petroleum sectors.

Vision Statement:

Modern Applied Research is multidisciplinary in nature, requiring the combination of established engineering, computer science techniques such as systems identification, control engineering, optimisation, image processing with more recent development such as mobile and cloud computing.

The human dimension of research is ultimately what makes it worth doing. Current radiotherapy physics treatment are becoming patient specific, offering opportunities to develop new control solutions to improve treatment delivery and quality control. In intelligent transportation systems research focuses on being able to simulate accurately scenario that could help individual carry out their journey in a timely but more importantly predictable manner.

Research Interests

Intelligent transportation systems, agent technology, semantic web, service oriented architecture; The application of systems modelling, control and imaging techniques to medical and industrial domains
