About the Authors
Fang-Xiang Wu (M'06) received the BSc and MSc degrees in applied mathematics, both from Dalian University of Technology, China, in 1990 and 1993, respectively. He received his first PhD degree in control theory and its applications from Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi'an, China, in 1998, and his second PhD degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada, in 2004. During 2004-2005, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Laval University Medical Research Center (CHUL), Quebec City, Canada. Dr. Wu joined the University of Saskatchewan (U of S) in 2005 and is currently an associate professor of bioengineering in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Division of Biomedical Engineering. His current research interests include systems biology, genomic and proteomic data analysis, biological system identification and parameter estimation, and applications of control theory to biological systems. He has published more than 100 technical papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings. He is serving as an editorial board member of two international journals and as a program committee member of several international conferences. He has also reviewed papers for many international journals. He is a member of the IEEE.
