Ye Yuan was born on Oct. 1986. He received his B. Eng. (Valedictorian) under the supervision of Prof. Yugeng Xi from Department of Automation, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 7.2008 and M. Phil., Ph.D. from Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge in 9.2009, 2.2012 under the supervision of Dr. Jorge Goncalves. He is now a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, working on a three-UK-institute joint project on " Control Engineering Inspired Design Tools for Synthetic Biology". He is also holding a visiting researcher position at Bioengineering, Imperial College London with Prof. Mauricio Barahona and Dr. Guy-Bart Stan from Oct. 2011 to Jan. 2015.
He was a visiting student researcher at UNM, HKUST, Balling Lab at Luxembourg Centre of System Biomedicine, Richard M. Murray's Lab at California Institute of Technology and LIDS, Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Prof. Munther Dahleh and Prof. Alex Megretski.
He is the recipient of Dorothy Hodgkin Postgraduate Awards, Microsoft Research PhD Scholarship, Cambridge Overseas Scholarship (twice), Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Students Studying Abroad and Henry Lester Scholarship (four times), and a number of travel awards from Pembroke College, Cambridge Engineering Department, Microsoft Research, IEEE, EECI, Los Alamos National Lab etc.. His research interest lies in the mathematical control theory, graph theory with applications to complex network and biology. He is a member of IEEE and IET, a reviewer of IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, Automatica, Systems and Control Letter, IEEE Signal Processing Letter, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II, IEEE CDC, ACC, etc.. He also served as co-chair of a session in CDC, ACC.
