Stephen M. Phillips received a BS degree in electrical engineering from Cornell University in 1984 and MS and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1985 and 1988, respectively. From 1988 to 2002, he served on the faculty of Case Western Reserve University from 1995 to 2002; he also served as director of the Center for Automation and Intelligent System Research, an industry-university-government collaborative at Case. In 2002, he joined the faculty of Arizona State University as professor of electrical engineering and appointed electrical engineering department chair in 2005 and director of the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering in 2009. He has held visiting positions at the NASA Glenn Research Center and the University of Washington. He has served as a program evaluator and is a professional engineer registered in the state of Ohio.
