Dr. John P. Thomas’s work involves creating structured processes for analyzing cyber-physical systems, especially systems that may behave in unanticipated, unsafe, or otherwise undesirable ways through complex interactions with each other and their environment. By using control theory and systems theory, more efficient and effective design and analysis processes can be created to prevent flaws that lead to unexpected and undesirable behaviors when integrated with other systems.
He has been applying these techniques to automated systems that are heavily dependent on human-computer interactions to achieve safety and security goals.
He holds a Ph.D. in Engineering Systems and is a member of the aeronautics and astronautics department at MIT. He is also the executive director of the MIT Partnership for Systems Approaches to Safety and Security (PSASS).
