Ganesh J. Pai

I am a research scientist employed by SGT, Inc., at the NASA Ames Research Center, in the Robust Software Engineering technical area, of the Intelligent Systems Division (Code TI).

My research interests lie in the broad areas of systems and software engineering with a focus on dependability and safety. Presently, I am interested in the safety assurance of flight-critical systems and software, and in the safety aspects of airworthiness certification of unmanned aircraft, to enable their routine access to the national airspace system.

My alma mater is the University of Virginia, from where I graduated with degrees in Computer Engineering (PhD), and Electrical Engineering (MS). I am a member of the AIAA, the IEEE, the IEEE Computer Society, and Eta Kappa Nu.
