Prof X.J. Jing received his B.S. degree from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, M.S. degree in Artificial Intelligence & Control, and PhD degree in Robotics both from Shenyang Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shenyang, China. He also achieved the PhD degree in nonlinear systems and signal processing from the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, U.K. He is now a Professor with the Department of Mechanical Engineering, City University of Hong Kong. Before joining in CityU, he was a Research Fellow with the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton, working on biomedical signal processing, and thereafter Assistant Professor and Associate Professor with Hong Kong Polytechnic University. His current research interests are generally related to Nonlinear Dynamics, Vibration, and Control focusing on theory and methods for employing nonlinear benefits in engineering, including nonlinear frequency domain methods, nonlinear system identification or signal processing, vibration control, robust control, sensor technology, energy harvesting, nonlinear fault diagnosis or information processing, bio-inspired systems and methods, and robotics etc.

Prof Jing received 2016 IEEE SMC Andrew P. Sage Best Transactions Paper Award for the robust control theory in vehicle suspension systems; The passive anti-vibration structure developed by his group received 2017 TechConnect Innovation Award, recognized as the top 20% of all submitted technologies as ranked by the TechConnect Corporate & Investment Partner Committee, which was also reported in many local media press including a specific interview in a TVB program in 2017; He was honored with the 2017 EASD Senior Research Prize in the area of development of methodologies for structural dynamics due to “his important contributions for the analysis and design of nonlinear systems”, awarded by the European Association for Structural Dynamics (EASD), which is an important and prestigious once-3-year event in Europe; The innovative technology BIAVE (bio-inspired anti-vibration exoskeleton for operating hand-held demolition tools) invented by his R&D team received the 2017 Hong Kong CIC Construction Innovation Award (The First Prize in Construction Safety, one of the three First Prizes among more than 120 submissions), which is an important well-recognized once-2-year event in HK with international peers as award committee members each time.

Prof Jing currently serves as Associate Editors of Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing (MSSP), IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics and IEEE Transactions on Systems Man Cybernetics-Systems. He also served as Technical Editor of IEEE/ASME Trans. on Mechatronics during 2015-2020. He was the lead editor of a special issue on “Employing nonlinear benefits in engineering” published in the archive journal MSSP in 2019, lead editor of special issue on “Next generation of vibration control exploiting nonlinearities” published in MSSP in 2022, and served as the general chair of ICANDVC2021 Zhuhai, China.

Prof Jing is a Senior IEEE member, and actively participate different R&D and scholar activities serving industry government programmes and international conferences.
