Dr. Xudong Chen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder.
My research interests are in geometric control theory, stochastic process, optimization, and game theory. Our research group develops novel engineering methods and advanced mathematical tools for investigating large-scale multi-agent systems. My recent research focus is on ensemble control and estimation theory, which is about using a single control input (and a single measurement output) to simultaneously steer a large population (in the limit, an infinite number) of individual dynamical systems. Applications of ensemble control and estimation include swarm of drones, micro-robotics, quantum systems, smart materials, social networks, and biological systems.
