BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Minfan Fu received his bachelor, master, and doctoral degrees from University of Michigan and Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute at 2010, 2013, and 2016, respectively. From 2016 to 2018, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Virginia Tech. Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES), and his advisor was Dr. Fred C. Lee (National Academy of Engineering member, IEEE life Fellow). He joined the School of Information Science and Technology, ShanghaiTech University as an assistant professor in Mar. 2018. His main interests include wireless power transfer, high-frequency power conversion, high-frequency magnetics, and the application of wide-bandgap devices. He has published over 30 papers on top journals and conferences. At CPES, he successfully developed the next-generation GaN-based DCDC module for China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC). Compared to the state-of-the-art products, the peak efficiency and power density are improved respectively from 91% to 96% and from 88 W/inch3 to 130 W/inch3. The estimated annual revenue is 20 million RMB.
