Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Coordinated Science Lab
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Sean P. Meyn received the B.A. degree in Mathematics Summa Cum Laude from UCLA in 1982, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from McGill University in 1987 (with Prof. P. Caines, McGill University). After a two year postdoctoral fellowship at the Australian National University in Canberra, Dr. Meyn and his family moved to the Midwest. He is now a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and a Research Professor in the Coordinated Science Laboratory at the University of Illinois. He is also an IEEE fellow. He is coauther with Richard Tweedie of the monograph Markov Chains and Stochastic Stability, Springer-Verlag, London, 1993, and received jointly with Tweedie the 1994 ORSA/TIMS Best Publication In Applied Probability Award. The 2009 edition is published in the Cambridge Mathematical Library. His new book, Control Techniques for Comlex Networks is published by Cambridge University Press. He has held visiting positions at universities all over the world, including the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore during 1997-1998 where he was a Fulbright Research Scholar. During his latest sabbatical during the 2006-2007 academic year he was a visiting professor at MIT and United Technologies Research Center (UTRC). His research interests include stochastic processes, optimization, complex networks, and information theory.
