My name is Jianguo Zhao. I am currently a fifth year PhD student at Michigan State University under the supervision of Prof. Ning Xi. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology, and my Master's degree in Mechatronic Engineering from Shenzhen Graduate School, Harbin Institute of Technology. Before I came to United States to pursue my PhD degree, I worked at Johnson Electric for about half a year.
I am doing research in robotics and control. My research interests include: bio-inspired robotics, jumping locomotion for miniature robots, muti-mode locomotion for miniature robots, visual servo control, nanoscale motion control, compressive sensing, cyber-physical systems, mechatronics. You can find more information about my research and publications. You can also find more information in my Google Scholar Profile, my Linkedin Profile, or my Curriculum Vitae.
