Shaoshuai Mou


Associate Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics – Purdue University
Co-Director – Center for Innovation in Control, Optimization, and Networks (ICON)

Dr. Mou received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Yale University in 2014, worked as a postdoc researcher at MIT for a year, and then joined Purdue University as a tenure-track assistant professor in Aug. 2015. His research has been focusing on advancing control theories with recent progress in optimization, networks, and learning to address fundamental challenges in autonomous systems, with particular research interests in multi-agent systems, control of autonomous systems, learning and adaptive systems, cybersecurity, and resilience. Dr. Mou co-directs Purdue’s research Center for Innovation in Control, Optimization and Networks (ICON), which consists of 63 faculty from 12 departments across the university with the aim of enhancing research and teaching collaboration in autonomous and connected systems. The Center for ICON was launched in September 2020 as a university unit to serve Purdue’s Autonomous and Connected Systems Initiative (ACSI). Dr. Mou also started to co-chair this strategic initiative ACSI in Spring 2022.
