Prof. Anding Zhu

RF Frontend

Anding Zhu received his Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering from University College Dublin (UCD) in 2004. He has been working in UCD since 2005, first as a Post-doc, then a Lecturer, an Associate Professor and now he is a Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. His research interests are in the area of nonlinear modelling and characterisation of RF circuits and systems with a particular emphasis on digital linearisation of RF power amplifiers for wireless communications. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers and received research funding from various sources including awards from Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), European Space Agency (ESA), Enterprise Ireland (EI) and industry donations. Prof. Zhu collaborates with many universities and international companies. He was appointed as a Guest Research Fellow at University of Aveiro, Portugal in 2006 and worked as a Visiting Scholar at University of California at San Diego (UCSD) in 2007. Prof. Zhu was undertaking a sabbatical leave working as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Stanford University from January to June 2013. He is currently with the RF & Microwave Research Group at UCD and he is the Director of the IoE2 Lab, a multidisciplinary research laboratory focusing on developing enabling technologies and making scientific breakthroughs for next generation Internet of Things (IoT) and future (5G) communication networks. Prof. Zhu is a Funded Investigator in the SFI Research Centre for Future Networks and Communications – CONNECT, where he is particularly working on physical layer networkaware intelligent radio access nodes in collaboration with Xilinx, Analog Devices, MA-COM and Synopsys. His current research includes behavioural modelling and digital linearisation of RF power amplifiers, high-frequency non-linear circuit and system simulation, wireless transmitter architectures, RFDAC, digital signal processing and nonlinear system identification algorithms.
