Bio: Dr. Guodong Shi (Member, IEEE) received his B.Sc. degree in mathematics and applied mathematics from the School of Mathematics, Shandong University, Jinan, China, in 2005, and a Ph.D. degree in systems theory from the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, in 2010. From 2010 to 2014, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher with the ACCESS Linnaeus Centre, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. From 2014 to 2018, he was with the Research School of Engineering at Australian National University, as a Lecturer, and then, a Senior Lecturer, and a Future Engineering Research Leadership Fellow. In 2019, he joined the Australian Centre for Field Robotics as a Senior Lecturer.
Research Expertise: Guodong Shi’s research aims to grasp the structural and functional aspects of multiple genres of networks motivated by engineering, social, and quantum network systems, using tools ranging from control theory and optimisation to computational complexity and stochastic decision-making. His research outputs have impacted:
- the understanding in the roles of adversaries and biases in social opinion dynamics,
- developing fundamental distributed control and optimisation algorithms,
- designing novel privacy-protection mechanisms, and
- advancing scalability for quantum information processing.
