Dr. Lu Gan received her B. Eng and M. Eng. degrees from South East University, China and the Ph.D degree from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 1998, 2000 and 2004 respectively. She is currently a senior lecturer (equivalent to associate professor) in Brunel University, London. Before she joined Brunel University in 2008, she has been on the faculties with The University of Newcastle (2004-2006), Australia and University of Liverpool, UK (2006-2007). From 2003 to 2004, she was a research associate in Centre for Signal Processing, Nanyang Technological University. 
Dr. Gan’s research interests include fundamental signal processing theories and their applications in image/video coding and processing, non-destructive terahertz and ultrasound imaging, machine learning and wireless communications etc. Her research work has been funded by Australian research council, The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) UK and TWI UK.  She is a member of IEEE and a regular reviewer for many top journals including IEEE Transactions on Information theory, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, IEEE transactions on Communications and IEEE transactions on image processing etc.  She has also been reviewing research grants in UK EPSRC and UK STFC and FWO in Belgium (equivalent to EPSRC in UK).  She has been on the technical committee member for conferences including Globecom and ICC. 

So far, she has more than 30 publications on journals with high impact factor and more than 60 conference publications. She has been working as Ph. D thesis/viva examiner for more than 20 candidates in UK and Australia. Her google scholar file can be found here.
