Zhong-Ping JIANG received the B.Sc. degree inmathematics from the University of Wuhan, Wuhan, China, in 1988, the M.Sc.degree in statistics from the University of Paris XI, France, in 1989, and thePh.D. degree in automatic control and mathematics from the Ecole des Mines deParis (now, called ParisTech-Mines), France, in 1993, under the direction ofProf. Laurent Praly.
Currently, he is a Professor of Electrical andComputer Engineering at the Tandon School of Engineering, New York University.His main research interests include stability theory,robust/adaptive/distributed nonlinear control, adaptive dynamic programming andtheir applications to information, mechanical and biological systems. He is coauthorof four books Stability and Stabilizationof Nonlinear Systems (with Dr. I. Karafyllis, Springer, 2011), Nonlinear Control of Dynamic Networks(with Drs. T. Liu and D.J. Hill, Taylor & Francis, 2014), Robust Adaptive Dynamic Programming(with Y. Jiang, Wiley-IEEE Press, 2017) and NonlinearControl Under Information Constraints (with T. Liu, Science Press, 2018).He also is the (co)author of 15 book chapters, 196 published/accepted journalpapers, and numerous conference papers. His work has received over 18,200citations with an h-index of 68, by Google Scholar.
