Dr. Michael A. Hamilton is an Associate Director at Mississippi State University's Institute for System Engineering Research (ISER) in Vicksburg, MS. He received his Doctorate, Master and Bachelor degrees in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Mississippi State University and has a graduate certificate in Modeling, Simulation, and Visualization Engineering from Old Dominion University. Currently, he is the technical lead for Big Data Analytic and Visualization, and Surrogate Modeling efforts in conjunction with the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC). Over the past 4 years, Dr. Hamilton have been leading the efforts for developing immersive virtual environments for conducting data analyzes of tradespace data sets. The immersive data visualization systems allows stakeholders the ability to visualize the tradespace options, subset the data, and work in collaboration with other analysts within the same virtual environment. Other research interest includes using virtual reality for enhancing classroom education in engineering programs.
