Chinwendu Enyioha is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Harvard University, hosted by Vahid Tarokh and Na Li. Prior to arriving Harvard, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher in Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, where he also completed his Ph.D. His doctoral research, supervised by George Pappas and Ali Jadbabaie, in the areas of networked dynamical systems, and cyber-physical systems. While at Penn, he was affiliated with the GRASP  (Robotics) Lab and the PRECISE Center.
Before that, he completed the BS in Mathematics (Summa Cum Laude) at Gardner-Webb University (GWU). Dr. Enyioha is a Fellow of the Ford Foundation, was named a Fontaine Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania and has received the Mathematical Association of America Patterson award, amongst others. His research lies in the areas of design, optimization and limited-communication coordination of distributed networked systems, with applications to aerial robots, cyber-physical networks and smart, connected devices.
