Thomas A. Sudkamp

I am Professor Emeritus in Computer Science at Wright State University.  I have served as Chair of the Department of Computer Science and Computer Engineering, Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies, Dean of the University College, Vice President for Curriculum and Instruction, and Provost.  I also served three terms as Wright State University Faculty President. 

I am currently the Executive Director of Ohio Strong Start to Finish for the Ohio Department of Higher Education.  Ohio Strong Start to Finish is a collaboration of 30 public Ohio colleges and universities with the goal of increasing the number of students who complete gateway mathematics and English courses in their first year of studies from 33% to 50%. 

My research interests have included the fields of approximate reasoning, artificial intelligence, and mathematical logic.  Current interests are in the application of soft computing techniques for modeling and decision making in complex problem domains, machine learning, and knowledge discovery.

I am an area editor Fuzzy Sets and Systems.  I have served as associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics and the IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, an area editor for the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning, and a member of the editorial board of The International Journal of Computational Intelligence.  I have also served as president of the North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society (NAFIPS) and vice president of the International Fuzzy Systems Association (IFSA).
