Personal Profile

Leimin Wang received the Ph.D. degree in control science and engineering from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, in 2016, and he is currently a Professor with the School of Automation, China University of Geosciences, Wuhan, China.

Leimin Wang has published over 50 papers in the international top academic journals related to neural networks, artificial intelligence and automatic control, including the IEEE TNNLS, IEEE TFS, IEEE TCYB, NNs and other fields. The published high-level papers include 19 IEEE Transactions papers with impact factor greater than 10, and 5 ESI highly cited papers, which have been cited more than 2800 times in Google Scholar. He has also authorized 5 national invention patents.  

Due to outstanding academic contributions, Leimin Wang was nominated for the Chinese Association of Automation (CAA) Outstanding Doctorate Dissertation in 2017 and World’s Top 2% Scientists in 2023. Leimin Wang is the PI of two projects  of National Natural Science Foundation of China (The stability analysis and finite-time control of memristive neural networks with mixed multiple delays, 61703377, 2018.01-2020.12; Synchronization control of memristive neural networks with spatial dynamic characteristics and its applications, 62076229, 2021.01-2024.12). The main contents of the project (No. 62076229) are as follows.

Memristor is one of the best choices to reproduce the learning and memory function of synapse at the hardware level. The memristive neural network (MNN) can well simulate the working mechanism of human brain, and it has become a research focus in the field of brain-like intelligence. Spatial dynamic characteristics, i.e., the spatial diffusion phenomenon and spatial distributed delay, are typical features of the circuit of MNN. In the project, the modeling, synchronization control and application of MNN with spatial dynamic characteristics are deeply analyzed. First, we construct the circuit of MNN with spatial diffusion and distributed delay, and build the mathematical model of partial differential equation. Then, by analyzing the influence of diffusion term and distributed delay on the structure and parameters of the model, an adaptive intermittent feedback control method is proposed for achieving the asymptotic and exponential synchronization. Furthermore, in order to realize the finite/fixed-time synchronization, we design variable finite-time controllers with fractional power and spatial position information. Finally, the synchronization outcomes are applied to image encryption. Meanwhile, the effectiveness of the synchronization control methods and the proposed encryption algorithms are verified through software simulation and a hardware experiment platform based on DSP. The achievements of the project will provide new ideas, technologies and approaches for the dynamic analysis and control of MNN, and provide theoretical foundation for the design, development and construction of nonlinear systems with spatial dynamic characteristics.

Leimin Wang is teaching several courses, including the undergraduate courses “Big Data Technology in Intelligent Manufacturing Process”, “Computer Networks and Industrial Internet”, and the postgraduate course "Artificial Neural Networks and Applications".
