Biography

Dr. Chee Khiang Pang, Justin, received the B.Eng.(Hons.), M.Eng., and Ph.D. degrees in 2001, 2003, and 2007, respectively, all in electrical and computer engineering, from National University of Singapore (NUS). In 2003, he was a Visiting Fellow in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITEE), University of Queensland (UQ), St. Lucia, QLD, Australia. From 2006 to 2008, he was a Researcher (Tenure) with Central Research Laboratory, Hitachi Ltd., Kokubunji, Tokyo, Japan. In 2007, he was a Visiting Academic in the School of ITEE, UQ, St. Lucia, QLD, Australia. From 2008 to 2009, he was a Visiting Research Professor in the Automation & Robotics Research Institute (ARRI), University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), Fort Worth, TX, USA. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), NUS, Singapore. He is also an A*STAR Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) Associate, Faculty Associate of A*STAR Data Storage Institute (DSI), a Senior Member of IEEE, and a Member of ASME.

His research interests are on ultra-high performance mechatronic systems, with specific focus on advanced motion control for nanopositioning systems, precognitive maintenance using probabilistic assessment of degradation, and energy-efficient task scheduling considering uncertainties.

Dr. Pang is an author/editor of 3 research monographs including Intelligent Diagnosis and Prognosis of Industrial Networked Systems (CRC Press, 2011), High-Speed Precision Motion Control (CRC Press, 2011), and Advances in High-Performance Motion Control of Mechatronic Systems (CRC Press, 2013). He is currently serving as an Associate Editor for Journal of Defense Modeling & Simulation and Transactions of the Institute of Measurement and Control, on the Editorial Board for International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems, International Journal of Automation and Logistics, and International Journal of Computational Intelligence Research and Applications, and on the Conference Editorial Board for IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS). In recent years, he also served as a Guest Editor for Asian Journal of Control, International Journal of Systems Science, Journal of Control Theory and Applications, and Transactions of the Institute of Measurement and Control. He was the recipient of The Best Application Paper Award in The 8th Asian Control Conference (ASCC 2011), Kaohsiung, Taiwan, 2011, and the Best Paper Award in the IASTED International Conference on Engineering and Applied Science (EAS 2012), Colombo, Sri Lanka, 2012.
