Dr. Xudong Chen is Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder.
His research interests are in geometric control theory, stochastic process, optimization, and game theory. His research group develops novel engineering methods and advanced mathematical tools for investigating large-scale multi-agent systems. His 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.
Dr. Chen is an awardee of the 2020 Air Force's Young Investigator Research Program.
