Dr. Zhu received his bachelor’s and PhD degrees from Northwestern Polytechnical University in 2006 and 2011, respectively. After that, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Nonlinear Physics Centre, Australian National University. From 2012 to 2016, he was a research fellow at the Advanced Computing and Simulation Laboratory, Monash University. He has been with the Department of Electronic Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University since April 2016. He is also an adjunct senior research fellow in the Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering at Monash University. He has published/co-published over 60 journal papers and 2 patents. His research interests include theory, modeling and numerical analysis of electromagnetic waves in metamaterials, metamaterial based antennas and RF devices, nano antennas, and surface plasmon polaritons.
