Prof. Xu received his Ph.D. degree from Princeton University in 2007. From 2001 to 2002, he worked at Bell Labs, NJ, as a Research Associate and discovered the First Generation Dilemma (FGD) 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 developed and implemented two generations of NoC-based ultra-low power Multiprocessor Systems-on-Chip for mobile platforms.

In 2007, Prof. Xu joined the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He established Mobile Computing System Lab and Xilinx-HKUST Joint Lab. He currently serves as the Area Editor of NoC, SoC, and GPU for ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems and Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Systems. He served on the steering committees, organizing committees, and technical program committees of many international conferences, including DAC, ICCAD, CASES, ICCD, EMSOFT, CODES+ISSS, NOCS, RTCSA, ASP-DAC, etc.

Prof. Xu is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer and was an ACM Distinguished Speaker. He authored or coauthored more than 80 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).
