Dr Su Rong obtained his Bachelor of Engineering degree from University of Science and Technology of China, and Master of Applied Science degree and PhD degree from University of Toronto, respectively. He was affiliated with the University of Waterloo and Technical University of Eindhoven before he joined Nanyang Technological University in 2010. Dr Su's research interests include multi-agent systems, discrete-event system theory, model-based fault diagnosis, cyber security analysis and synthesis, control and optimization of complex networks with applications in flexible manufacturing, intelligent transportation, human-robot interface, power management and green buildings. In the aforementioned areas he has more than 300 journal and conference publications, 2 monographs, 18 granted/filed patents. Dr Su is a senior member of IEEE, and an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, Automatica (IFAC), Journal of Discrete Event Dynamic Systems: Theory and Applications, and Journal of Control and Decision. He was the Chair of the Technical Committee on Smart Cities in the IEEE Control Systems Society in 2016-2019. Currently, he is a co-chair of the Technical Committee on Automation in Logistics in the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. Dr Su is the recipient of 2021 Hsue-shen Tsien Paper Award from IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica Sinica, a Distinguished Lecturer for 2020 Chinese Conference on Decision and Control (CCDC'20) and an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer for IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.
