Daniel E. Rivera is Professor of Chemical Engineering and Program Director for Arizona State University’s Control Systems Engineering Laboratory. Prior to joining ASU he was a member of the technical staff at Shell Development Company in Houston, Texas. He has been a visiting researcher with the Division of Automatic Control at Linköping University, Sweden, Honeywell Technology Center in Phoenix, AZ, the University "St. Cyril and Methodius, " in Skopje, Macedonia, the National Distance Learning University (UNED) in Madrid, Spain, and the University of Almería in Andalucía, Spain. His research interests include the topics of robust process control, system identification, and the application of control engineering principles to problems in process systems, supply chain management, and prevention and treatment interventions in behavioral health. In 2007, Dr. Rivera was awarded a K25 Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award from the National Institutes of Health to study control systems approaches for fighting drug abuse.
