Multi-Objective Optimal Design of Nonlinear Controls




Dr. Jian-Qiao Sun earned his PhD from University of He worked for Lord Corporation at their Corporate R&D Center in Cary, North Carolina, and since engaged in smart materials research and applications, and acoustic-structural controls. In 1994, Dr. Sun jointed the faculty of the department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Delaware as an Assistant Professor, was promoted to Associate Professor in 1998 and to Professor in 2003.


He is currently a professor in School of Engineering at University of California, Merced.

Research Scope

He was an Associated Editor of ASME Journal of Vibration and Acoustics since 1994 to 2000, and was an Associated Editor of Communications in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulations from 2001 to 2012, an Editorial Board Member of Acta Mechanica Solida Sinica from 2003-2012, an Editorial Board Member of Journal of Vibration and Control since 2005 and Journal of Sound and Vibration since 2006. From October 2012, he started serving as the founding Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Dynamics and Control published by Springer.

Research Interests

His research interests include cell mapping methods, multi-objective optimization, nonlinear random vibrations, nonlinear controls, active structural-acoustic control, stochastic systems, modeling and physical therapy applications of smart materials, time-delayed dynamical systems, and optimal HVAC control and fault detection of energy efficiency of office buildings.
