Lan Fu is currently a Professor and Head of the Department of the Electronic Materials Engineering at the Research School of Physics, the Australian National University (ANU). Professor Lan Fu’s main research interests include design, fabrication and integration of optoelectronic devices (LEDs, lasers, photodetectors and solar cells) and chemical sensors based on low-dimensional III-V compound semiconductor structures including quantum wells, self-assembled quantum dots and nanowires grown by metal-organic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD). She has published ~200 publications (including ~150 journal papers), 3 book chapters, co-edited 6 conference proceedings/journal special issue, and holds 2 US patents. Professor Lan Fu was the recipient of the IEEE Photonic Society Graduate Student Fellowship (2000) and Distinguished Lecturer Award (2021-2022), Australian Research Council (ARC) Postdoctoral Fellowship (2002), ARF/QEII Fellowship (2005) and Future Fellowship (2012). She was also a member of ARC College of Experts (2019-2021). Professor Lan Fu has been the Chair of IEEE Nanotechnology Council Chapters & Regional Activities Committee (2019-), Associate Editor of IEEE Photonics Journal (2021-), and member of Editorial Board of Opto-Electronic Advances (2019-). She is also the Deputy Chair of the Australian Academy of Science National Committee on Materials Science and Engineering, Secretary of the Executive Committee of Australian Materials Research Society (AMRS).
