  • Federal Funding Opportunities for Junior Investigators in System Science and Control Engineering–Special Session at ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Conference (DSCC) 2016: served as organizer of this special session to bring together program officers from federal agencies in a focused panel on funding opportunities for junior investigators in the field of dynamic systems and controls.

  • Open-learning initiative: instructor and designer of “ME 233: Advanced Control Systems II, Spring 2014”—the first graduate-level course in System and Controls that was fully webcasted for free to YouTube and iTunes-U at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, UC Berkeley.

  • International benchmark on adaptive regulation: an international benchmark on adaptive regulation from 2012-2013 (lead by Dr. Ioan D. Landau and supported by European Control Association). The benchmark provides an up-to-date scientific evaluation of available procedures applicable in the fields of active vibration control and noise control.
