LSU Today Flagship Faculty
What was your previous position and where?I was a visiting assistant professor in electrical engineering at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, from 1988 to 1990.
What brought you to LSU?LSU attracted me with its culture rooted in the great state of Louisiana.
What is your research interest?My present research is primarily in control, focusing on networked feedback control, and in signal processing, specializing in wireless sensor network.
What do you hope to accomplish at LSU?I hope to solve several difficult problems in networked feedback control and in nonlinear and adaptive control. I also hope to write a couple of books to summarize my research accomplished at LSU.
What do you enjoy most about LSU?I enjoy working with my students, and also enjoy spending leisure time with my colleagues in addition to working with them.
What are your major accomplishments?My major research work is carried out at LSU including one book, six book chapters, 63 publications in top technical journals and 78 international conference papers with total citations exceeding 1,000. My research has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the United States Army and Air Force, with the total amount exceeding $3 million. I was recently named an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Fellow in recognition of my research accomplishments. Regarding education, I have trained eight Ph.D., 17 master's students and taught hundreds of undergraduate students. More importantly, I have taught 16 different LSU catalog-listed courses and five different special topics courses covering control, signal processing and communications. The number of different courses I have taught is probably the largest in the College of Engineering. In addition, I developed several new courses including the only digital signal processing, or DSP, course with the DSP Lab.
