Short biography

A. K. Qin (M'05) received his B.E. Degree from Southeast QinUniversity (Nanjing, China) in 2001, and the Ph.D. degree from Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) in 2007. During his Ph.D., he was with the Illinois Genetic Algorithms Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Urbana, IL, USA) as a visiting scholar for three months in 2005, and worked as a project officer at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) from 2006 to 2007. After completing the Ph.D. degree, he joined the Department of Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo (Waterloo, ON, Canada) as a postdoctoral fellow from 2007 to 2009. He is currently a faculty member with the School of Automation at Southeast University (Nanjing, China).
