Professor Jingjin Yu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science. Prior to joining Rutgers, he was a postdoctoral researcher at MIT CSAIL. Previously, he had embraced many academic and industrial endeavors, having worked full time at AT&T and AQR capital management, and holding degrees in Material Science (BS, USTC), Chemistry (MS, U. Chicago), Mathematics (MS, UIC), Computer Science (MS, U. Illinois), and Electrical and Computer Engineering (PhD, U. Illinois). He is broadly interested in the research domain of robotics and control, focusing on issues related to computational complexity and the design of efficient algorithms with provable guarantees. A current focus of his research group is the tackling of difficult combinatorial perspectives of multi-robot and multi-body systems, e.g., the optimal coordination of the simultaneous motion of hundreds of robots.
