Alejandro White received his Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the North Carolina A&T State University in 2003. He later received his Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) in 2007. In 2013, he joined the North Carolina A&T State University to pursue his Ph.D. degree. He defended his PhD dissertation on fault diagnosis of Discrete event systems in 2017. His dissertation title was “Failure Diagnosis of Discrete Event Systems Under Unknown/Uncertain Activation Conditions”. His research interests include “Hybrid Control systems,” “Discrete Event Systems,” “Reliable Control Systems,” and “Robotics”. He was a member of Autonomous Cooperative Control of Emergent Systems of Systems (ACCESS) Lab from 2013-2018. His PhD dissertation was on "Failure Diagnosis of Discrete Event Systems Under Unknownn/Uncertain Activation Conditions." He was awarded an Internship by Air Force Research Lab for Summer 2016 and 2017.
