About Me


Zigang Pan received his B.S. degree in Automatic Control from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1990, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992 and 1996, respectively. In 1996, he was a Research Engineer at the Center for Control Engineering and Computation at University of California, Santa Barbara. In the same year, he joined the Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY, as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering for two years. Afterwards, he joined the faculty of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, P. R. China, in the Department of Automation. In January 2001, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Cincinnati as an Assistant Professor.  Since 2005, he is pursuing research on his own interest. 


His current research interests lies in optimality-guided robust adaptive control for single-input and single-output linear systems, and its generalization to multiple-input and multiple-output systems, as well as nonlinear systems. 

He was a co-winner of the 1995 George Axelby Best Paper Award. He was a Silver prize winner in the 28th International Mathematical Olympiad. He is a member of IEEE and AMS, and an affiliate of IFAC.
