YangQuan Chen earned his Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 1998. He had been a faculty of Electrical Engineering at Utah State University (USU) from 2000-12. He joined the School of Engineering, University of California, Merced (UCM) in summer 2012 teaching “Mechatronics”, “Engineering Service Learning”, “Unmanned Aerial Systems” and “Digital Twins” for undergraduates; “Fractional Order Mechanics”, “Linear Multivariable Control”, “Nonlinear Controls” and “Advanced Controls: Optimality and Robustness” for graduates. His research interests include mechatronics for sustainability, cognitive process control and smart control engineering enabled by digital twins, small multi-UAV based cooperative multi-spectral “personal remote sensing”, applied fractional calculus in controls, modeling and complex signal processing, distributed measurement and control of distributed parameter systems with mobile actuator and sensor networks. He is listed in Highly Cited Researchers by Clarivate Analytics from 2018 to 2021. He received Research of the Year awards from USU (12) and UCM (20). Most recently he started with Dr. Bruce J. West a new book series of CRC Press on AFC4STEM (Fractional Order Thinking in Exploring the Frontiers of STEM) and established a new section for Fractals and Fractional journal on “Optimization, big data and AI/ML”. His Google Scholar citations are over 55100 with H-index 100, H-10 index 643.
