Brief Biography

I'm currently a research associate in the Verification of Autonomous Systems group at Imperial College London, working with Prof. Alessio R. Lomuscio. From 03/2019 to 08/2020, I was a postdoctoral scholar in SEAS and CGBC at Harvard University working with Prof. Na Li and Prof. Ali Malkawi. I received the B.S. and M.E. degrees in Department of Automotive Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2013 and 2015. In Feb. 2019, I received the DPhil (Ph.D.) degree in Control from the University of Oxford for my work on Chordal Sparsity in Control and Optimization of Large-scale Systems under the supervision of Prof. Antonis Papachristodoulou.

I am broadly interested in learning, optimization, and control of network systems, and their applications to autonomous vehicles and traffic systems. Check here for some highlights of my research.

I will be joining the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UC San Diego as an Assistant Professor in July 2021. Multiple Ph.D. openings are available for Fall 2021; see application instructions here. Prospective students and visiting interns are welcome to get in touch. If you are interested, feel free to drop me an email with your CV and transcripts (zhengy@eng.ucsd.edu).
