Wu Huaining (1972.11—) is a professor and PhD supervisor of the School of Automation Science and Electrical Engineering of Beihang University. He is a distinguished professor of the Chang Jiang Scholars Program and an awardee of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars.
Prof. Wu received his doctor’s degree from Xi’an Jiaotong University in 1997. His research focuses on the theory and application of robust and fault-tolerant control, intelligent control and distributed parameter control systems. He brought up a low-dimensional intelligent control method for non-linear distributed parameter systems, which is easier to implement in engineering. His contributions also include a fuzzy control theory for non-linear distributed parameter systems that is based on a fuzzy PDE model, an optimal control algorithm via off-policy reinforcement learning and so on.
In recent years, he has led or participated in over ten research projects and published more than 100 papers in journals indexed by the Science Citation Index. He serves as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, and the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man & Cybernetics: Systems. He was listed in Elsevier’s annual list of Most Cited Chinese Researchers. He has won a second prize of the State Natural Science Award and a prize for excellent PhD supervisor awarded by the Chinese Association of Automation.
