Dongkun Han earned his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2014 from the University of Hong Kong. From 2014 to 2016, he was a research associate at the Department of Informatics, Technical University of Munich, Germany. From 2016 to 2017, he was a research fellow at the Department of Aerospace Engineering, the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, United States. From 2013 to 2014, he was an exchange research student at Information Systems Laboratory, Stanford University, USA. In 2015, he was a visiting academic faculty at the Department of Electrical Engineering, German Institute of Science and Technology-TUM Asia, Singapore. He joined the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering, the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2017. The focus of his research is on the cooperative control of multi-agent systems, synchronization of complex networks, robustness of uncertain systems, and stability of nonlinear systems.
