Yi Guo joined Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology as Assistant Professor in August 2005, and became Associate Professor in 2011. Before 2005, she was a visiting Assistant Professor in ECE Department of University of Central Florida.
Dr. Guo received 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. After her Ph.D, she worked as a postdoctoral reseach fellow in Center for Engineering Science Advanced Research, Computer Science and Mathematics Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for two years.
Dr. Guo's basic research interests are mainly in nonlinear systems and control, cooperative mobile robotics. She has research experience in various projects in power system stabilization and decentralized control, multiple robot motion planning and navigation, and stability modeling and congestion control of computer networks. She's also interested in multidisciplinary areas including control theory, mechanical and electrical engineering, 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, and to apply dynamic systems and control theory to modern engineering systems.
