Hubbard joins the Department of Mechanical Engineering
Dr. James E. Hubbard, Jr. has joined the faculty of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University as a Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Research Distinguished Professor.
Before joining Texas A&M, Hubbard served as the Samuel P. Langley Distinguished Professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, and director of the Morpheus Laboratory and the Center for Adaptive Aerospace Vehicle Technology through the National Institute of Aerospace.
Hubbard received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees, all in mechanical engineering, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
He is known internationally for his work in aeroacoustics for noise control, adaptive structures, spatially distributed transducers, and the extension of modem time domain control methodologies into the spatial domain for the real-time control of distributed systems.
Hubbard is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and a senior member of the International Society for Optical Engineering.
His research interests include: smart structure design and control; morphing aircraft technology; control of distributed parameter systems; smart skin sensing technology; ultra-low power energy management and storage; self-powered wireless sensor networks; energy harvesting; and internet of things.
