More than seventy five percent of the appointed female political leaders in the first government of South Sudan at the country, state and national levels, were active members and direct beneficiaries of SWAN.
For innovative contributions to control theory, stochastic systems, and networks and academic leadership in systems and control Biography: Baras holds a permanent joint appointment as professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering and the Institute for Systems Research.
He was the founding director of ISR, which is one of the first six National Science Foundation engineering research centers. He also serves as a faculty member of the university's Interdisciplinary Program in Applied Mathematics and an affiliate professor in the Computer Science Department.
Baras has served the organization in various leadership positions. He also serves on the editorial boards of numerous mathematics and engineering journals and book series, and consults extensively with industry and government on various automation and telecommunication problems.
He is the recipient of two Invention of the Year awards from the University of Maryland, holds two patents, and has received many awards for his research and publications. Baras received his B. Text of Acceptance Speech: Dear President Masada, colleagues, students, ladies and gentlemen. I am deeply moved by this award and honor, and truly humbled to join a group of such stellar members of our extended systems and control community, several of whom have been my mentors, teachers and role models throughout my career.
I am grateful to those who nominated me and supported my nomination and to the selection committee for their decision to honor my work and accomplishments.
I was fortunate through my entire life to receive the benefits of exceptional education. From special and highly selective elementary school and high school back in Greece, to the National Technical University of Athens for my undergraduate studies and finally to Harvard University for my graduate studies.
Many thanks are also due to my students and colleagues at the University of Maryland, in the US and around the world, and in particular in Sweden and Germany, for their collaboration, constructive criticism and influence through the years. Several are here and I would like to sincerely thank you all very much.
I am grateful to the agencies that supported my research: I would also like to thank many industry leaders and engineers for their advice, support, and collaboration during the establishment and development of both the ISR and HyNet to the renowned centers of excellence they are today.
Most importantly I am grateful to my wife Mary, my partner, advisor and supporter, for her love and selfless support and sacrifices during my entire career. The Harvard-MIT exceptional environment allowed me freedom of choice. Thanks to Roger Brockett I was convinced that systems and control, our field, would be the best choice as I could pursue all of the above.
It has indeed proven to be a most exciting and satisfying choice. But there were important adjustments that I had to make and lessons I learned.
I did my PhD thesis work on infinite dimensional realization theory, and worked extensively with complex variable methods, Hardy function algebras, the famous Carleson corona theorem and several other rather esoteric math. I learned the importance of judiciously blending data-based and model-based techniques.
In the seventies, I took a successful excursion into detection, estimation and filtering with quantum mechanical models, inspired by deep space laser communication problems, where my mathematical physics training at Harvard came in handy.
I then worked on nonlinear filtering, trying to understand how physicists turned nonlinear inference problems to linear ones and investigate why we could not do the same for nonlinear filtering and partially observed stochastic control.
This led me to unnormalized conditional densities, the Duncan-Mortensen-Zakai equation and to information states.Other Details: Research Interests: Nicotine is a major alkaloids present in the tobacco, which makes users to addiction and tobacco dependence.

Carbohydrates, and the role they play in a healthy diet, are one of the most hotly contested nutritional debates in the world, both in conventional and ancestral health circles.
One one side, you’ve got folks who say that carbohydrates are nonessential and increase your risk for diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and neurological disorders.
