Prof. Jiang is known for his contributions to stability and control of interconnected nonlinear systems, and is a key contributor to the nonlinear small-gain theory. His recent research focuses on robust adaptive dynamic programming, distributed nonlinear control, and their applications to computational and systems neuroscience, connected vehicles, and cyber-physical systems.
Doctor of Philosophy, Automatic Control and Mathematics
Master of Science, Statistics
Bachelor of Science, Mathematics
In joint collaboration with Professor David Hill, I continued to work on the development of advanced applied nonlinear control theory driven by the need to solve challenging engineering problems arising from electrical power systems, underactuated mechanical systems, and chemical networks.
From: April 1996 to May 1998
Working with Prof. Iven Mareels on advanced nonlinear control theory with applications in underactuated mechanical systems such as mobile robots and cars with trailers.
From: April 1994 to April 1996
The main responsibility was to solve a long-standing open problem related to the attitude control of a spacecraft with only two control inputs, and to develop novel tools and methods for underactuated mechanical systems.
From: September 1993 to April 1994
