Assistant Professor Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering   Research Group

Dr. Fan Liu is currently an Assistant Professor of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech). He received the Ph.D. and the BEng. degrees from Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT), Beijing, China, in 2018 and 2013, respectively. He has previously held academic positions in the University College London (UCL), first as a Visiting Researcher from 2016 to 2018, and then as a Marie Curie Research Fellow from 2018 to 2020.


Dr. Fan Liu's research interests include the general area of signal processing and wireless communications, and in particular in the area of Integrated Sensing and Communications (ISAC). He has 10 publications selected as IEEE ComSoc Besting Readings in ISAC. He is the Founding Academic Chair of the IEEE ComSoc ISAC Emerging Technology Initiative (ISAC-ETI), an Associate Editor for the IEEE Communications Letters and the IEEE Open Journal of Signal Processing, a Lead Guest Editor of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, special issue on ``Integrated Sensing and Communication'', and a Guest Editor of the IEEE Wireless Communications, special issue on ``Integrated Sensing and Communications for 6G''. He was also an organizer and Co-Chair for numerous workshops, special sessions and tutorials in flagship IEEE conferences, including ICC, GLOBECOM, ICASSP, and SPAWC. He is the TPC Co-Chair of the 2nd IEEE Joint Communication and Sensing Symposium (JC&S), and will serve as a Track Co-Chair for the IEEE WCNC 2024. He is a Member of the IMT-2030 (6G) ISAC Task Group. Dr. Fan Liu was listed in the World's Top 2% Scientists by Stanford University for citation impact in 2021. He was also the recipient of the IEEE Signal Processing Society Young Author Best Paper Award of 2021, the Best Ph.D. Thesis Award of Chinese Institute of Electronics of 2019, the EU Marie Curie Individual Fellowship in 2018, and has been named as an Exemplary Reviewer for IEEE TWC/TCOM/COMML for 5 times.
