GT MAP Seminar: Prof. Yongxin Chen (GT AE)

This is a part of the GT MAP activities.  GT MAP is a place for research discussion and collaboration. We welcome participation of any researcher interested in discussing his/her project and exchange ideas with Mathematicians.

There will be light refreshments through out the event. This seminar will be held in Skiles 006  and refreshments at Skiles Atrium.


A couple of members of Prof. Chen's group will present their research

3:00 PM - 3:45PM Prof. Yongxin Chen will give a talk

3:45PM -- 4:00PM Break with Discussions

4:00PM - 4:25PM Second talk

4:25PM - 5PM Discussion of open problems stemming from the presentations.


Prof. Yongxin Chen received his B.S. in mechanical engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China, in 2011, and a Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering, under the supervision of Tryphon Georgiou, from University of Minnesota in 2016.  He currently serves as an assistant professor in the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Before joining Georgia Tech, he had a one-year research fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center from August 2016 to August 2017 and was an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University from August 2017 to August 2018.

He has conducted researches in stochastic control, optimal transport and optimization. His current research focuses on the intersection between control, machine learning and robotics with the goal to develop theoretical foundations and algorithms for robots so that they are able to accomplish complex tasks autonomously and reliably.
