Dr. Daniel Herber is an assistant professor in the Systems Engineering Department Colorado State University.  His primary area of research interest is engineering design, especially formal design methods and design automation for dynamic engineering systems.  He has focused on integrated architecture, plant, and control design of dynamic engineering systems.  A majority of his research has been concentrated around the development of both the theory and tools needed for rigorous, system-level design utilizing techniques from dynamic system modeling and analysis, optimization, optimal control, combinatorics, and algorithmics.

Daniel received a Ph.D. in Systems & Entrepreneurial Engineering in 2017 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and was advised by James T. Allison.  He received a M.S. in Systems & Entrepreneurial Engineering in 2014 from the UIUC.  He received a B.S. in General Engineering in 2011 from the UIUC.   He is a member of the Engineering System Design Lab (ESDL).   He has collaborated with the NSF center for Power Optimization of Electro-Thermal Systems (POETS), Deere & Company, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
