Ashok Srivastava Selected as AIAA Journal Editor in Chief

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) has selected Ashok N. Srivastava, Ph.D., to replace Dr. Michael Hinchey as the Editor in Chief of its Journal of Aerospace Computing, Information, and Communication. An AIAA Senior Member, Dr. Srivastava leads the Intelligent Data Understanding Group at the NASA Ames Research Center.

Dr. Srivastava has led the Intelligent Data Understanding Group since 2002, and has been responsible for developing new data mining technologies to detect precursors to aviation safety incidents and accidents. From 2007 to 2010, Dr. Srivastava was the Principal Investigator of the NASA Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) program, which develops advanced technologies to detect, diagnose, predict, and mitigate adverse events during flight. Since 2010, he has led NASA’s System-Wide Safety and Assurance Technologies program, which continues many of the same goals as the IVHM program, but adds significant areas of research in verification and validation and human-automation interaction.

Dr. Srivastava has edited three books in the field of data mining and serves as an Associate Editor for the Statistical and Data Mining Journal, published by the American Statistical Association. Dr. Srivastava received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

BACKGROUND: The Journal of Aerospace Computing, Information, and Communication is devoted to the applied science and engineering of aerospace computing, information, and communication. In his new role as Editor in Chief, Dr. Srivastava is encouraging the submission of original, high-quality, theoretical and application-oriented papers that describe methods, tools, and techniques, and that advance the state of the art in the disciplines of verification and validation, machine learning and knowledge management, human-automation interaction, and systems health management. Application areas related to autonomous systems, systems of systems, and safety and mission assurance are also encouraged, and new types of content will be considered as well.

AIAA is the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession. With more than 35,000 individual members worldwide, and 90 corporate members, AIAA brings together industry, academia, and government to advance engineering and science in aviation, space, and defense.
