Dr Guoqiang Hu is currently a Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He Joined NTU Singapore in 2011 as an assistant professor, and was promoted to associate professor (with tenure) and full professor, in 2017 and 2021, respectively. Before joining NTU Singapore, he was an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering at Kansas State University, USA, from 2008 to 2011. He received B.Eng. in Automation from University of Science and Technology of China in 2002, M.Phil. in Automation and Computer-Aided Engineering from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2004, and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Florida in 2007.

His research interests are in AI and robotics. Specifically, he works on optimization and control, game theory, and learning algorithms, with applications to robotics and smart city systems. He received several awards, including Best Paper in Automation Award in the 14th IEEE International Conference on Information and Automation, Best Paper Award in the 36th Chinese Control Conference, Best Paper Award in the 4th Asia Pacific Conference of the Prognostics and Health Management Society, and Early Career Teaching Excellence Award by the School of EEE in 2015.

He served as Deputy Director of SMRT-NTU Corporate Lab in 2016-2019, Director of Centre for System Intelligence and Efficiency in 2016-2021, Assistant Chair (Research) of School of EEE in 2018-2022, and Co-Program Leader of CREATE program SinBerBEST 2 in 2017-2023. He currently serves as Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology and IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control. He was an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering and a Technical Editor for IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics.
