This information is accurate as of the fellowship year indicated for each fellow.
Elizabeth Bradley, a professor in the computer science department at the University of Colorado, is interested in nonlinear dynamics, artificial intelligence, and control theory. Her recent research focuses on turning chaos to advantage. This research has many applications in engineering design: faster electronics and better fuel injectors, for example.
During her fellowship year, she will explore the use of chaos and machine learning techniques to create choreographic variations.
Bradley did her undergraduate and graduate work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, interrupted by a one-year leave of absence to row in the 1988 Olympic Games. She is the recipient of a National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award, a Packard Fellowship, and the 1999 John and Mercedes Peebles Innovation in Education Award from the University of Colorado?s College of Engineering and Applied Science.
