PROF JIE BAO
Interim Hub Director
Professor Jie Bao is a Process Control expert, particularly in dissipativity/passivity based process control. He leads the Process Control Research Group/Laboratory, School of Chemical Engineering. He has been awarded more than $11 million competitive research grants including 11 Australian Research Council Discovery Projects/Large Grants, one CSIRO National Flagship Research Cluster project and one Australian Coal Research Association Program project.
His research interests include dissipativity theory-based process control, behavioral systems theory, networked and distributed control systems, big-data based control using AI tools, and control applications in membrane separation, flow batteries, coal preparation and Aluminium smelting. He published extensively in major process control and chemical engineering journals. He is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Process Control (an International Federation of Automatic Control affiliated journal) and Digital Chemical Engineering (an IChemE affiliated journal).
