Biographical details

Xiaofeng Wu was born in Shanghai, China. He obtained his BEng in Space Engineering from School of Astronautics, Northwestern Polytechnical University, China. In 2005, he was awarded a PhD by Loughborough University, UK for his work on VLSI design of high-speed application-specific processors for real-time control. He worked for 2 years as a Research Engineer at the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology (SAST). Before he joined University of Sydney in 2008, he worked for 3 years as a Research Fellow at Surrey Space Centre (SSC) and its spin-off Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL).
