    Professional Biography:

    John-Paul Clarke is an Associate Professor in the School of Aerospace Engineering and Director of the Air Transportation Laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He received S.B. (1991), S.M. (1992), and Sc.D. (1997) degrees in aeronautics and astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research and teaching in the areas of control, optimization, and system analysis and design are motivated by his desire to simultaneously maximize the efficiency and minimize the societal impact (especially on the environment) of the global air transportation system. He has made seminal contributions in the areas of air traffic management, aircraft operations, and airline operations – three key elements of the air transportation system – and has been recognized globally for developing, among other things, the analytical foundations for the Continuous Descent Arrival (CDA) and novel concepts for robust airline scheduling. His research has resulted in significant changes in engineering methods, processes and products – most notably the development of new arrival procedures for four major US airports and one European Airport, and changes in airline scheduling practices. Dr. Clarke is an Associate Fellow of AIAA and a member of AGIFORS, INFORMS, and Sigma Xi. He serves or has served on several national and international committees including the AAA Air Transportation Systems Technical Committee and the AIAA Technical Committee on Management. He was the first director of PARTNER, the Center of Excellence for Aviation Noise and Aircraft Emissions Mitigation, and is a researcher in PARTNER and NEXTOR, the Center of Excellence for Aviation Operations Research. Dr. Clarke was awarded the AIAA/AAAE/ACC Jay Hollingsworth Speas Airport Award in 1999, the FAA Excellence in Aviation Award in 2003, and was selected as a Gilbreth Lecturer by the National Academy of Engineering in 2006.
