Short Bio:

Lingjia Liu received the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Electronic Engineering Department from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, and completed his Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree at Texas A&M University in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He spent the summer of 2007 and spring of 2008 in the Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratory. Prior to joining the EECS Department at the University of Kansas in 2011, he spent more than three years in the Standards Research Laboratory of Samsung Research America – Dallas where he got Global Samsung Best Paper Award twice (in 2008 and 2010 respectively). He was a leading delegate from Samsung on downlink MIMO, Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) transmission/reception, and Heterogeneous Network (HetNet) in 3GPP RAN1. He was elected as the New Faces of Engineering 2011 by the Diversity Council of the National Engineers Week Foundation and was recognized during the 2011 National Asian American Engineers of the Year Awards Banquet in Seattle (News Release in Dallas Morning News).

Lingjia Liu is a member of the Phi Kappa Phi honor society and a member of IEEE. He is currently serving as an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, and as Associate Editors for the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking as well as Wiley's International Journal on Communication Systems. He is also serving on editorial board of Cyber Journals: Journal of Selected Areas in Telecommunications (JSAT) as well as Hans Journal of Wireless Communications. He is co-editor of special issues of several journals.

Lingjia Liu has 15+ journal publications, 25+ conference papers, 30+ US patent applications, 10+ essential intellectual property rights (IPRs), and numerous technical contributions to major wireless standards including both 3GPP LTE/LTE-Advanced and IEEE 802.16m.
