Dr. Qing (Julia) Zheng received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from North China University of Technology in China in 1996; her M.Eng. in Electrical and Computer
Engineering from National University of Singapore in 2003; and her D.Eng. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cleveland State University in 2009.
In fall 2018, Dr. Zheng joined the College of Engineering at California Baptist University where she is currently a professor of the Aerospace, Industrial and Systems, and Mechanical Engineering department.

Between fall 2009 and spring 2018, she was an assistant and then an associate professor in the College of Engineering at Gannon University in Erie, PA. Before joining Gannon, she had worked as an intern at Rockwell Automation during her doctoral study. Prior to that, she had been employed at Beijing Institute of Control Devices and had worked on various research and development projects for five years.

Dr. Zheng has expertise in control and electronic systems design & integration. She has led various R&D projects in different institutions. Her experience includes 20+ years of industrial and academic experience in control systems design & implementation as well as 10+ years of experience in electronic systems design & integration. Her research interests include: active disturbance rejection control, multivariable control and optimization with emphasis on their applications in biomedical systems, power systems, MEMS, fuel cell, cargo ship steering, chemical processes, and other real industrial problems. Dr. Zheng has a US Patent and over 50 papers published in leading journals and premier conference proceedings in both her research fields and education. She has regularly presented papers in national and international conferences. She organized the symposium of “Disturbance Rejection Control (DRC)”, including three technical sessions, at the 2017 ASME/IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Embedded Systems and Applications (ASME/IEEE MESA2017). Dr. Zheng was as an Associate Editor for American Control Conference and Asian Control Conference. She has been serving as a reviewer for various journals and a Technical Session Chair for quite a few international conferences. She won the Best Poster Paper Award at
the 2017 Chinese Control Conference (CCC2017). She is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and a member of Eta Kappa Nu (HKN).
Dr. Zheng is married to Fangjing Wang and they have two children.
