Prof Zudi LU joined, as a Professor/Chair in Statistics, in Mathematical Sciences Academic Unit and Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute (S3RI) at University of Southampton, UK, in late 2013. Prior to that, he had worked at several international academic institutions, including the University of Adelaide (2009-2013) and Curtin University (2006-2009) in Australia, the London School of Economics (2003-2006) in the UK, the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science (1997-2003) in Beijing, China, and the Universite Catholique de Louvain (1996-1997) in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, after he received his PhD degree from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1996. He was a recipient of the Australian Research Council Future Fellowship in its 2010 round, and is an elected member of the International Statistical Institute.
