Wu-Sheng Lu received his undergraduate education in mathematics from Fudan University, Shanghai, China, from 1959 to 1964, the M.S. degree in electrical engineering, and the Ph.D. degree in control science from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA, in 1983 and 1984, respectively.
He was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Victoria, Victoria, B.C., Canada, in 1985, and a visiting assistant professor at the University of Minnesota from January 1986 to April 1987. He joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of Victoria, in May 1987 as an associate professor, and has been professor there since 1991. His current research interests include analysis and design of digital filters, digital signal and image processing with a focus on sparse signal processing, and methods and applications of convex optimization. He is the co-author with A. Antoniou of Two-Dimensional Digital Filters (Marcel Dekker, 1992) and Practical Optimization: Algorithms and Engineering Applications ( Springer, 2007).
Dr. Lu has held guest professor positions at several academic institutions, including the National Taiwan University, Hiroshima University, Japan, Tampere University of Technology, Finland, and the East China Normal University, China. He served as editor for the Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering and associate editor for several journals including IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II, International Journal of Multidimensional Systems and Signal Processing, and Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Signal Processing.
Dr. Lu received several awards for his teaching at University of Victoria. He was elected Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada in 1994. In 1999, he was elected Fellow of the IEEE for contributions to the analysis and design of multidimensional and multirate digital filters and discrete systems. He became a Life Fellow of the IEEE in 2012. Dr. Lu is a registered professional engineer in British Columbia, Canada.
