Prof. Yifei Chen
China Agriculture University, Beijing, China

Professor Yifei Chen was born in Beijing, China. He received the B.S.E.E. degree from Dept. of Electrical Engineering of Beijing Agricultural Mechanization College in 1984, and the M.Phil (S. of Mang.) degrees in management engineering and applied science from Bei Hang University in 1991, the M.S. degree in control theory and control engineering from Beijing Agricultural Engineering University in 1994. Since graduation in 1984, he still works as the researcher and teacher in collage of Electronic & Electrical Power Eng. of Beijing Agricultural Engineering University which was renamed as China Agriculture University later. After holding the position in the university, he studied further in control theory class by IFCA in Tongji University at Shang Hai from1995 to 1997, worked in Institute of Science and Technology Burlin as visiting scholar during 1999, where he currently holds the academic positions in research like intelligent control and agri-ROBOT.
