Lyle N. Long Welcome !

You can find information on my students, research, teaching, and other things here. Just click on the buttons on the left or the bolded links below. In addition to Aerospace Engineering, I am involved with several other departments at Penn State.

My current research involves: (1) Developing hybrid cognitive systems for robots and unmanned vehicles and (2) Spiking neural networks and learning. There is a complete list of my publications online.

I am Director of the Graduate Minor in Computational Science (with more than 315 graduate students involved since 1999) and the Undergraduate Minor in IST for Aerospace. See my CrossTalk Journal paper on the importance of software education, and my IEEE paper on the importance of modernizing education and the importance of students learning about computing and software.

If you want to see what the weather is like in central Pennsylvania, you could look out on the campus and Mount Nittany. Or you can take a virtual walk on campus via Google Street View. You might also want to check my Google Scholar page.
