Curriculum Vitae

Fangning Hu was born in Hangzhou, China. She received her Bachelor degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering of Zhejiang University of China. In 2000, she was granted a scholarship from DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) and pursued her master studies in Duisburg, Germany. From July, 2002 to December, 2002 she did her master thesis at Technical University of Munich (TUM). After finalizing her master thesis, she received the master degree from the department of Information and Communication of Gerhard-Mercator Unversity, Duisburg. Thereafter, she worked as a research assistant at TUM in the area of machine learning, specificly, support vector machine and image processing. In May 2004, she began her Ph.D. studies at Jacobs University Bremen and finished her Ph.D. in August 2008. She continued research as a postdoc (research associate) in the area of iterative decoding of Turbo and LDPC codes and Analog (DFT) Codes, OFDM/DMT systems, and signal processing.

She was a lecturer at the School of Telecommunication Engineering of HangZhou DianZi University, China and is currently teaching the Digital Signal Processing and Communications Lab at Jacobs University.
