Yi Guo joined Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology as Assistant Professor in August 2005. She was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2011, and full Professor in 2017. Before joining Stevens, she was a Visiting Assistant Professor in ECE Department of University of Central Florida from 2002 to 2005.
Dr. Guo recieved the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Xi'an University of Technology, China, in 1992 and 1995, respectively. She obtained her Ph.D degree in Electrical and Information Engineering in 1999 from University of Sydney, Australia. Her research was performed in the Dynamical Systems and Control Group under the supervision of Prof. David Hill. After her Ph.D, she worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in Center for Engineering Science Advanced Research, Computer Science and Mathematics Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory from 2000 to 2002, where she performed research in autonomous mobile roboics under the guidance of Dr. Lynne Parker.
Dr. Guo's research interests are mainly in autonomous mobile robotics, nonlinear systems and control. She has research experience in various projects in distributed mobile robotics, cooperative control of multi-agent systems, control of nanoscale systems, and power system stabilization and decentralized control. She's interested in multidisciplinary areas including robotics, control theory, mechanical and electrical engineering, physics, computer science, artificial intelligence, and operational research. Her research goal is to develop the mathematical foundations and computational tools for understanding and designing large complex systems in various scales, and to apply dynamic systems and control theory to modern engineering systems and robotics. Dr. Guo is a senior member of IEEE.
