Brief Biography

Dr. Yao received his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley in February 1996 after obtaining M.Eng. degree in Electrical Engineering from Nanyang Technological University of Singapore in 1992 and B.Eng. in Applied Mechanics from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics of China in 1987. He has been with the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University since 1996 and was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in 2002 and Professor in 2007. He was honored as a Kuang-piu Professor in 2005 and a Changjiang Chair Professor at Zhejiang University by the Ministry of Education of China in 2010 as well.

 

Dr. Yao was awarded a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 1998 and a Joint Research Fund for Outstanding Overseas Chinese Young Scholars from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) in 2005. His research interests include the design and control of intelligent high performance coordinated control of electro-mechanical/hydraulic systems, optimal adaptive and robust control, nonlinear observer design and neural networks for virtual sensing, modeling, fault detection, diagnostics, and adaptive fault-tolerant control, and data fusion. He has published significantly on the subjects with well over 150 technical papers while enjoying the application of the theory through industrial consulting. He is the recipient of the O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper (Theory) Award from the American Automatic Control Council in 2004 and the Outstanding Young Investigator Award of ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Division (DSCD) in 2007. He is a member of ASME and IEEE and has chaired numerous sessions and served in a number of International Program Committee of various IEEE, ASME, and IFAC conferences including the General Chair of the 2010 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics. From 2000 to 2002, he was the Chair of the Adaptive and Optimal Control Panel and, from 2001 to 2003, the Chair of the Fluid Control Panel of the ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Division (DSCD). He is currently the Chair of the ASME DSCD Mechatronics Technical Committee he initiated in 2005. He was a Technical Editor of the IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics from 2001 to 2005, and has been an Associate Editor of the ASME Journal of Dynamic Systems, Measurement, and Control since 2006.

Awards

Chang Jiang Chair Professorship Award, Ministry of Education of P.R.China and Li Ka-Shing Foundation, 2010


The award is in recognition of his contributions in the field of Mechatronics by the Ministry of Education of China. The Chang Jiang Scholars Program (http://www.changjiang.edu.cn/ ) was jointly established by China's Ministry of Education and the Li Ka-Shing Foundation in 1998. The main objective of the program is to further improve China's standard of education and intellectual competitiveness by rapidly developing Chinese research institutions through the engagement of Chang Jiang Scholars. The program is to attract, select, and create a group of world leaders for advanced research in all areas of higher education. It is the highest recognition program from the Ministry of Education. The appointments are made based on nation-wide competition among the nominees by Chinese universities.

Chang Jiang Chair Professor awardees must have an outstanding record in research, be internationally recognized in their field, and be capable of developing a first-class research program. From 1998 to 2010, China has selected 612 Chang Jiang Chair Professors who are professors and scientists from foreign countries. These chair professors conduct collaborative research in various Chinese universities for short terms. Professor Yao will have frequent visits to Zhejiang University in China over the next three years. 

Outstanding Young Investigator Award, ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Division (DSCD), 2007


The award is given biannually by the Dynamic Systems and Control Division (DSCD) of ASME ( http://divisions.asme.org/DSCD/ ) to a DSCD member who will not have reached his/her 40th birthday until after the date the award is scheduled to be presented, and who as a mechanical engineering professional, has demonstrated outstanding research contributions, either basic or applied, in fields of interest to the DSCD (http://divisions.asme.org/DSCD/Honors_Awards.cfm). The citation for the award is ”For fundamental contribution to the adaptive robust control theory and its application to the integrated design of intelligent and precision mechatronic systems”.
