Prof. Jiang Xu received his Ph.D. degree from Princeton University. From 2001 to 2002, he worked at Bell Labs, NJ, as a Research Associate and discovered the First Generation Dilemma in platform-based SoC design methodologies. He was a Research Associate at NEC Laboratories America, NJ, from 2003 to 2005 and working on Network-on-Chip designs and implementations. He joined a startup company, Sandbridge Technologies, NY, from 2005 to 2007 and worked on the development and implementation of two generations of NoC-based ultra-low power Multiprocessor Systems-on-Chip.

Prof. Xu established Big Data System Lab, Xilinx-HKUST Joint Lab, and OPTICS (Optical/Photonic Technology for Interconnected Computing System) Lab at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He currently serves as Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems, Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration Systems, and the Area Editor of Hardware and Architecture Design for ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems. He served on the steering committees, organizing committees, and technical program committees of many international conferences, including DAC, DATE, ICCAD, CASES, ICCD, CODES+ISSS, NOCS, HiPEAC, ASP-DAC, etc.

Prof. Xu is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer and was an ACM Distinguished Speaker. He authored or coauthored more than 100 book chapters and papers in peer-reviewed journals and international conferences. He and his students received Best Paper Award from IEEE Computer Society Annual Symposium on VLSI in 2009, and Best Poster Award from AMD Technical Forum and Exhibition in 2010. He coauthored a book titled Algorithms, Architecture and System-on-Chip Design for Wireless Applications (Cambridge University Press).
