Bio: Prof. Fu received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Arizona State University (ASU) in 2019, and the BS degree in Materials Physics from Wuhan University, China in 2014. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University. Prior to joining ASU, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University.

Prof. Fu’s research focuses on third-generation wide bandgap semiconductor (i.e., GaN and nitride alloys, Ga2O3 and oxide alloys, and AlN) materials and devices for applications in electronics (e.g., power electronics and ICs, RF/microwave devices and MMICs, sensors) and photonics (e.g., optoelectronics, waveguides, nonlinear optics, quantum photonics). He won the 2023 NSF CAREER Award, 2022 Electronics Young Investigator Award, 2021 ISU Regents Innovation Fund Award, the 2019 Palais Outstanding Doctoral Award (the highest honor for ASU ECEE PhD graduates) and the 2018 ASU Outstanding Research Award. His work has been chronicled in over 200 journal and conference publications, 4 book chapters, and 5 granted patents and 9 pending patents. His research has been featured by many media outlets including IEEE Spectrum, Semiconductor Today, Compound Semiconductor, Silicon Valley Microelectronics.
