Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering
Dr. Yujie Gu received the Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, in 2008. After graduation, he held several research positions in China, Canada, Israel and the United States. Currently, he works at Aptiv Advanced Engineering Center as a Senior Radar Scientist focusing on research and development of advanced automotive radar system. His main research experience is statistical and array signal processing, including information-theoretic compressive sensing, robust adaptive beamforming, and sparse array processing, with applications to radar, wireless communications, and radio astronomy imaging. Up to now, his most significant contribution to the Signal Processing Society is on interference covariance matrix reconstruction for the adaptive beamformer design, which solves the signal self-nulling problem in adaptive beamforming.
Dr. Gu is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the EURASIP. He is an elected member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society's Sensor Array and Multichannel (SAM) Technical Committee. Dr. Gu currently serves as a Subject Editor-in-Chief for Electronics Letters for Signal Processing, and Associate Editor for Signal Processing. He is the Lead Guest Editor of the Digital Signal Processing 2019 Special Issue on Source Localization in Massive MIMO. Dr. Gu served as a Special Sessions Co-Chair of the 2020 IEEE Sensor Array and Multichannel Signal Processing Workshop. He has also served as TPC member for a number of international conferences including IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, IEEE Radar Conference. Dr. Gu is the recipient of the 2019 IET Communications Premium Award.
