Jun Fan (S’97-M’00-SM’06) received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1994 and 1997, respectively. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla in 2000. From 2000 to 2007, he worked for NCR Corporation, San Diego, CA, as a Consultant Engineer. In July 2007, he joined the Missouri University of Science and Technology and is currently a Professor and Director of the Missouri S&T EMC Laboratory. Dr. Fan also serves as the Director of the National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for EMC. His research interests include signal integrity and EMI designs in high-speed digital systems, dc power-bus modeling, intra-system EMI and RF interference, PCB noise reduction, differential signaling, and cable/connector designs.

I have volunteered in various technical committees in the EMC Society over the past two decades. As an academic researcher and also directing a large industry/university cooperative research center, I understand the needs of both the academia and the industry. We live in a technology world that is experiencing unprecedented developments. If I become a board member, I will continue pushing the EMC society to embrace the new technology trends, proactively expand the technical scope to accommodate and foster the formation and development of special interest areas, and stay relevant for the industry to meet the needs for engineering and product development. A key factor for success of the society is the values it provides for the members. We should understand the differences among the different generations and provide opportunities for all especially the younger generations to get involved and play critical roles.
