Brief Introduction

I received my Ph.D. degree in control theory from Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2009, and then joined the Department of Automation, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). I was a visiting scholar at Division of Optimization and Systems Theory, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), from Apr. 2010 to Sep. 2010 and Sep. 2011 to Feb. 2012. Currently, I am an Associate Professor of SJTU, and my research interests focus on multi-agent systems and adaptive complex networks.
