Daniel Dichek is the lead electrical engineer on the Icefin project. He is also a master’s student pursuing a thesis in Georgia Tech’s ECE department. For Icefin, he designs and implements power, control and communication systems. His thesis research aims to improve the fidelity of machine state perception with probabilistic inference and biomimicry.
A 2014 graduate of Case Western Reserve University, he has worked at the think[box] invention center, and was an engineer in the Flight Controls Electronics group at Boeing Commercial Airplanes. He has two patents pending from his work improving air data equipment reliability on Boeing 767s, 777s, 737s and 787s.
If he has escaped the lab, he might be:
