Loyd Hook Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering University of Tulsa


Dr. Loyd Hook is associate professor of computer engineering at the University of Tulsa and the owner of “IO-Aero” an aviation autonomy software company. Loyd has worked for the past 17 years striving to achieve a vision for safer, more available, and more capable aircraft through increased autonomy. His current work focuses primarily on safety and emergency management systems and run-time assurance architectures. Loyd believes these systems hold the key to greater autonomy in aviation and subsequently will lead to a revolution in air transportation as the skies are opened up to the masses.  Loyd has M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Oklahoma in 2006 and 2011 respectively.
