Biography

Dr. Fu Zhang received his B.E. degree in Automation from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), Hefei, Anhui, China, in 2011, and the Ph.D. degree in Controls from the University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA, in 2015. His Ph.D. work focused on self-calibration and control of micro rate-integrating gyro sensors. In 2016, Dr. Zhang shifted his research to the design and control of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) as a Research Assistant Professor in the Robotics Institute of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). He joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the University of Hong Kong (HKU), as an Assistant Professor from Aug 2018. His current research interests are on robotics and controls, with focus on UAV design, navigation, control, and lidar-based simultaneous localization and mapping.
