Insoon Yang is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Seoul National University. He received B.S. degrees in Mathematics and in Mechanical Engineering (summa cum laude) from Seoul National University in 2009; and an M.S. in EECS, an M.A. in Mathematics and a Ph.D. in EECS from UC Berkeley in 2012, 2013 and 2015, respectively.
He was an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Southern California from 2016 to 2018, and a Postdoctoral Associate with the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from
2015 to 2016.
His research interests are in stochastic control and optimization, and reinforcement learning, with application to cyber-physical systems and safe autonomy. He is a recipient of the 2015 Eli Jury Award and a finalist for the Best Student Paper Award at the 55th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control 2016. He is an associate editor of the IEEE CSS Conference Editorial Board and a vice-chair of the IFAC Stochastic Systems Technical Committee.
