Hiro Mukai

Professor

Research

Professor Mukai's research activities involve development of new computational methods for both unconstrained and constrained optimization. He also develops methods for monitoring and controlling engineering systems such as electrical power networks. His recent interests focus on computation methods for differential games and dynamic estimation.

Biography

After brief service as a post-doctoral engineer at the University of California-Berkeley, Professor Mukai joined Washington University in St. Louis as an assistant professor in 1975. In 1982, while on a sabbatical leave, he taught at the University of California-Berkeley and worked as a full-time consultant in San Francisco for the Pacific Gas and Electric, a local utility company for most of northern California. From 1997 to 1998, while also on a sabbatical leave, he taught at the University of Namur in Belgium and worked as a researcher at the University of Ghent in Belgium.

Professor Mukai has twice been voted Professor of the Year by students in the WashU School of Engineering & Applied Science. He is a Professional Engineer registered with the State of Missouri.
