Renowned professor of electrical and computer engineering visits KAU

As part of the Highly-cited Researcher Programme, Dr Wei Ren, Professor of electrical and computer engineering at University of California, Riverside, USA, was received Monday by Prof Adnan Zahed, Vice President for Graduate Studies and Scientific Research.
The meeting was attended by Dr Ubaid M. Al-Saggaf, Associate Professor Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.
Professor Wei is a professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, Riverside. He received his PhD degree in electrical engineering from Brigham Young University, Provo, UT, in 2004. From 2004 to 2005, he was a postdoctoral research associate with the Department of Aerospace Engineering, University of Maryland, College Park. He was an assistant professor (2005-2010) and an associate professor (2010-2011) with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Utah State University. His research focuses on distributed control of multi-agent systems and autonomous control of unmanned vehicles. Dr. Ren is an author of two books: Distributed Coordination of Multi-agent Networks (Springer-Verlag, 2011) and Distributed Consensus in Multi-vehicle Cooperative Control (Springer-Verlag, 2008). He was a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2008. He is currently an associate editor for Automatica, Systems and Control Letters, and IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems.

Professor Wei, whose research interests include Multi-agent systems, cyber-physical systems, cooperative control, distributed control, networked control systems, autonomous vehicles, robotics, is due to give lectures and share expertise with KAU faculty.

The purpose of the visit, according to Prof Zahed, was to discuss aspects of mutual cooperation in scientific research in line with KAU's policy of seeking to provide a high-quality education and taking advantage of the capacity and expertise of other local and foreign universities and scientists.
