Ali Jadbabaie Elected an IEEE Fellow
Ali Jadbabaie, Alfred Fitler Moore Professor of Network Science in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, has been elected an IEEE Fellow for "contributions to the theory of multi-agent coordination and control." IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting of this prestigious grade elevation.
Jadbabaie studies networked dynamic systems and their applications to science, engineering and economics. His research is focused on the emergence of global phenomena from local interactions in complex networked systems such as the internet, social and economic networks, and networks of robots and sensors. By developing new tools and protocols for analysis and design of such systems, Jadbabaie works to find mathematically rigorous answers to questions of collective decision making and group behavior, ranging from how people form agreement through networked exchange of ideas to how birds flock and fish school.
IEEE is the world's largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE's highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.
