Yorai Wardi received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences under the guidance of Professor E. Polak at UC Berkeley in 1982. From 1982 to 1984 he was a Member of Technical Staff at Bell Telephone Laboratories and Bell Communications Research. Since 1984 he has been at Georgia Tech where currently he is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He spent the 1987-88 academic year at the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management, Ben Gurion University, Israel. Dr. Wardi is an associate editor of Discrete Event Dynamic Systems: Theory and Applications, a past associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control (2001-2003), and a past member of the IEEE Control Systems Society Conference Editorial Board (1999-2000).

Research interests: 
  • Analysis and optimization of discrete event dynamic systems
  • Sample-path sensitivity analysis of stochastic flow models
  • Optimal control of hybrid, switched-mode dynamical systems
