Natalia Alexandrov Principal Investigator NASA Langley Research Center


Dr. Natalia Alexandrov has been conducting and leading research in a broad range of multidisciplinary applications and methodologies in the area of complex system analysis and design at NASA. Her current interests are in modeling and control of heterogeneous cyber-physical-human systems governed by autonomous algorithms and human-machine teams. She now serves as co-PI of the ATTRACTOR (Autonomy Teaming & TRAjectories for Complex Trusted Operational Reliability) feasibility study, aimed at developing actionable criteria of trust and trustworthiness in autonomous systems. She is also on detail as the Convergent Aeronautics Solutions (CAS) Liaison. Dr. Alexandrov received her Ph.D. in Computational and Applied Mathematics at Rice University. She is a recipient of numerous awards, including NASA Exceptional Achievement Medal for the development of variable-fidelity model management in PDE-constrained design optimization. She is an AIAA Associate Fellow and serves on the Executive Council of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and the Steering Committee of the Business, Industry, and Government (BIG) Math Network.
