About Me

Dr. Liqun Fu is a Full Professor and Director of the Future Networking (FUN) Lab, in the School of Information Science and Engineering at Xiamen University. She received the Ph.D. degree in Information Engineering from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. She was a visiting scholar at CommNet Group, the Department of Electrical Engineering, Princeton University, from June to November in 2009. She was with the Institute of Network Coding of The Chinese University of Hong Kong as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow from 2011 to 2013, and with the ACCESS Linnaeus Centre of KTH Royal Institute of Technology as a Post-Doctoral Researcher from 2013 to 2015. Before joining Xiamen University, she was with ShanghaiTech University from 2015 to 2016.

Dr. Fu received the Global Scholarship for Research Excellence, awarded by The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2009. She received the ACCESS Scholarship awarded by the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in 2013. She was selected to the “Young 1000-Talents Plan” by the Chinese Government (第十二批国家“青年千人计划”入选者) in 2016. Recently, she is appointed as the ‘‘Min Jiang (闽江)’’ Distinguished Professor at Xiamen University.

Dr. Fu’s research interests are mainly in communication theory, optimization theory, game theory, and learning theory, with applications in wireless networks, power transfer networks, and large-scale data networks. She has published more than 20 research papers in the leading journals and prestigious conferences in the related field, such as IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (JSAC) and INFOCOM. She has served as the Vice-Chair of the GCCCN Special Interest Group of the IEEE Comsoc Technical Committee on Green Communications and Computing, 2012-2014. She serves as the Web Chair of IEEE WiOpt 2018, the Publicity Co-chair of the GSNC Workshop of IEEE INFOCOM 2016, and the Technical Program Co-chair of the GCCCN Workshop of IEEE INFOCOM 2014. She also serves as a technical program committee (TPC) member for many leading conferences in communications and networking, such as IEEE INFOCOM, ICC, GLOBECOM, and WCNC.
