Dr. Li received his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Polytechnic Institute of New York University (now Tandon School of Engineering of NYU) and his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY). Prior to joining the CET Department at City Tech, he worked as a Post-Doc in the Perceptual Robotics and Intelligent Sensing Machines (PRISM) Research Center at the City College of CUNY. Prof. Li’s major research areas are robotics, applied control systems, embedded systems, and computer vision. He has and keeps working on the research topics of swarm robotics, distributed robotic systems, localization and navigation of wireless sensor network, wearable vision for assistive living, anomaly detection in traffic control, and dynamic spectrum access in cognitive radio network. His current research also include reconfigurable robotics, IoT/IoRT, and applications of deep learning and perceptual computing.
Dr. Li is a member of IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, IEEE Control Systems Society, ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Division, and SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics).
Dr. Ma received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Utah State University focusing on autonomous ground robots. She did three-year post-doc at Virginia Tech working on a research project of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Prior to joining the Computer Engineering Technology (CET) Department at City Tech in Fall 2016, she was an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Technology at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA. Dr. Ma’s research areas include autonomous mobile robots, swarm robotics, applied control, vision-based control, visual servo, visual tracking, vision-assisted coordinated control, and sensing & perception techniques.
Dr. Wang received her B.S. in Physics and M.S. in Optoelectronics from Liaoning University and Dalian University of Technology in China, respectively. She received another M.S. in Electrical Engineering from The City College of New York and her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the CUNY Graduate Center. Before joining CityTech, she taught at CCNY and was part of a research team that develops formal models for the behavior of real-time systems. Dr. Wang was a faculty member in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Dalian Jiaotong University, China for seven years. Her research areas of interest include formal methods for real-time systems modeling, test automation for network protocols and embedded systems, communication networks, fiber optical communication and optoelectronics.
Dr. Xu received her Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Connecticut, her M.S. degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Applied Physics from the University of Connecticut and Northwestern Polytechnic University of China, respectively. Prior to joining the CET Department, she worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Connecticut, and she also worked as an Adjunct Professor at the Biomedical Engineering Department at the same time. Prof. Xu’s research interest are in biomedical sensors and instrumentation, image processing, signal processing, optical tomography, photoacoustic tomography and non-invasive medical test.
