Biography

Yiqun Zhu received BEng and MSc from Beihang University, Beijing, China, 1988 and 1991, respectively. He then worked in a key DSP research & development group, China Space Corporation, China.

From 1999 to 2003, he was doing his PhD research on electronic systems design in the department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, the University of Sheffield, UK. After obtaining his PhD degree, he was working as a senior Research & Development engineer for Dwight Cavendish Systems, UK, until joining Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, the University of Nottingham as a senior research fellow in 2004.

In 2011, he was appointed as an assistant professor within Faculty of Engineering, the University of Nottingham.
