Enoch Yeung

Enoch Yeung graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Mathematics, magna cum laude and with honors, from Brigham Young University in 2010. Upon graduating, Enoch was offered/awarded several PhD fellowships: an international scholarship to attend the University of Cambridge, a CCDC fellowship at UC Santa Barbara, a research fellowship at WSU, and an EAS fellowship at the California Institute of Technology. Enoch went on to pursue a PhD in Control and Dynamical Systems at the California Institute of Technology. His research interests include system identification, model reduction and controller synthesis for networked dynamical systems such as synthetic and in-vivo biological systems, the Internet, and social networks.

As an undergraduate, Enoch was awarded several BYU full/half tuition scholarships, a 2009-2010 Choose to Give scholarship, and an ORCA grant. Enoch used his ORCA grant to develop a theoretical framework for describing structure in linear-time-invariant dynamic systems. The primary contribution of this research was four graph-theoretic definitions of system structure and a set of results characterizing the relationships between these notions of structure. Enoch also lead several other research projects including: 1) the development of a model reduction procedure for dynamical structure functions using structured gramians 2) the development of a network reconstruction algorithm for dynamical structure functions using steady-state data. During the summer of 2009, Enoch worked with Sandip Roy, Mengran Xue, and Anurag Rai on the initial condition estimation problem for consensus networks.
