Short Biography

Yannis Paschalidis is a Professor and Distinguished Faculty Fellow in the College of Engineering at Boston University with joint appointments in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Division of Systems Engineering, and the Department of Biomedical Engineering. He is the Director of the Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE) - a Boston University research center with 37 affiliated faculty and more than $ 6.6 million of annual research expenditures. He is also affiliated with the BioMolecular Engineering Research Center (BMERC).

He completed his graduate education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) receiving an M.S. (1993) and a Ph.D. (1996) degree, both in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. In September 1996 he joined Boston University where he has been ever since. He has held visiting appointments with MIT, and the Columbia University Business School. His current research interests lie in the fields systems and control, networking, applied probability, optimization, operations research, computational biology, medical informatics, and bioinformatics. His recent work has found applications in communication and sensor networks, protein docking, logistics, cyber-security, robotics, the smart-grid, health care, and finance.

His work on communication networks has been recognized with a CAREER award (2000) from the National Science Foundation, the second prize in the 1997 George E. Nicholson paper competition by INFORMS, and the 2011 WiOpt best student paper award (on joint work with a student). His work on protein docking led to a first prize in the Protein Interaction Evaluation Meeting (CAPRI 2007), and the best performance by a computational predictor group (among 64 groups) in the Protein Interaction Evaluation Meeting (CAPRI 2009). He was an invited participant at the 2002 Frontiers of Engineering Symposium, organized by the National Academy of Engineering. He has served in the program and organizing committees of numerous conferences and has been a past associate editor of Operations Research, the ACM Trans. on Sensor Networks, the SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization (SICON), the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, Automatica, and the Operations Research Letters. Currently, he is the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and a member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Control Systems Society.
