Gang Qu received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from UCLA in 1998 and 2000, respectively. Previously, he had studied Mathematics in the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and the University of Oklahoma. He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland in 2000. He holds a joint appointment with the Institute for Systems Research. He is a joint associate professor at UMIACS and an affiliate associate professor at the Computer Science Department.

Dr. Qu is a member of IEEE and ACM. He is also an individual member of the Virtual Socket Interface (VSI) Alliance. He has served the technical program committee for many conferences and is currently the general co-chair for the 16th ACM Great Lakes Symposium on VLSI (GLSVLSI 2006). He has published more than 60 journal and conference papers in these areas and co-authored the first book in VLSI Design intellectual property protection. He has won the ACM SIGMOBILE MobiCom best student paper award in 2001.
