Dr. Kristin Y. Rozier has been awarded a Distinguished Service Award by the Intelligent Systems Technical Committee (ISTC) of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) for “Significant contributions to the activities of the ISTC and AIAA 2008-2013.” Dr. Rozier chairs the Publications and Professional Development, Education, and Outreach subcommittees. She has had many additional leadership roles in this capacity, including serving on the AIAA Intelligent Systems Award Selection Panel, helping to organize a “What is an Intelligent System" video contest, and organizing all peer reviews for the content of the book Advanced Intelligent and Autonomous Aerospace Systems. She has been in charge of the "Year in Review: Intelligent Systems" article in the December issue of Aerospace America magazine for the past four years.
Dr. Rozier founded the AIAA Intelligent Systems Science Fair Award, which has launched the research careers of several students who were otherwise not recognized by the Synopsis Santa Clara Valley Science and Engineering Fair (SCVSEFA). Based upon several years of judging, including at the SCVSEFA as a regular category judge, Dr. Rozier realized there was a need to recognize outstanding interdisciplinary projects. She founded the AIAA Intelligent Systems (IS) Award, which recognizes projects that best embody intelligent systems with applicability to the aerospace domain. The AIAA IS award is now an annual award that the SSCVSEFA has bestowed for the past three years.
BACKGROUND: Dr. Rozier is a research computer scientist in the Discovery and Systems Health technical area of the Intelligent Systems Division specializing in formal methods for design and run-time verification.
