Jeff Shamma's general research interest is feedback control and systems theory. His most recent area of interest is game theory and decision making for multiagent models in engineered and societal networked systems.

Jeff received a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech in 1983 and a PhD in Systems Science and Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1988. He has held faculty positions at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis; University of Texas, Austin; and University of California, Los Angeles; and visiting positions at Caltech and MIT. In 2007, Jeff returned to Georgia Tech where he is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Julian T. Hightower Chair in Systems & Control.

Jeff is a recipient of the NSF Young Investigator Award (1992), the American Automatic Control Council Donald P. Eckman Award (1996), and the Mohammed Dahleh Award (2013), and he is a Fellow of the IEEE (2006). He previously served on the Air Force Scientific Advisory Board (2008–2011) and is currently an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics (2009–present) and Games (2012–present) and a senior editor for the IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems (2013present).

Jeff's other interests include fishing in the local lakes & rivers of Georgia or in his hometown of Pensacola, learning Brazilian jiu jitsu, and chatting (arguing) with his brother.
