Short Biography

Dong SHEN (M'10-SM'17) received the B.S. degree in mathematics from Shandong University, Jinan, China, in 2005. He received the Ph.D. degree in mathematics from the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Beijing, China, in 2010 (supervised by Prof. Han-Fu Chen, IEEE Fellow, IFAC Fellow).

From 2010 to 2012, he was a Post-Doctoral Fellow with the Institute of Automation, CAS (advised by Prof. Fei-Yue Wang, IEEE Fellow, IFAC Fellow). From 2016 to 2017, he was a visiting scholar at National University of Singapore (with Prof. Jian-Xin Xu, IEEE Fellow). From 2019 July to August, he was a visiting scholar at RMIT University (with Prof. Xinghuo Yu, IEEE Fellow). From 2012 to 2019, he has been with College of Information Science and Technology, Beijing University of Chemical Technology, Beijing, China. Now, he is a Full Professor of Renmin University of China.

His current research interests include iterative learning control, stochastic control and optimization, machine learning and its applications. He has published more than 120 refereed journal and conference papers. He is the (co-)author of Iterative Learning Control for Systems with Iteration-Varying Trial Lengths (Springer, 2019), Iterative Learning Control with Passive Incomplete Information (Springer, 2018), Iterative Learning Control for Multi-Agent Systems Coordination (Wiley, 2017), and Stochastic Iterative Learning Control (Science Press, 2016, in Chinese), and co-editor of Service Science, Management and Engineering: Theory and Applications (Academic Press and Zhejiang University Press, 2012). Dr. Shen received the IEEE CSS Beijing Chapter Young Author Prize in 2014 and the Wentsun Wu Artificial Intelligence Science and Technology Progress Award in 2012. He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Access and IET Cyber-Systems and Robotics.
