Dr. Chu is an avid journal referee and is or has been on the Editorial Review Board of Decision Sciences JournalInternational Journal of Information Technology and Decision MakingInternational Journal of Information Systems and Change ManagementJournal of Healthcare Informatics and ManagementJournal of Production and Operations ManagementJournal of End User Computing and Journal of Microcomputer Systems Management. He has served as a track chair or program committee member for more than 30 international conferences. He chaired the Information Security Track for the 2007 Annual Meeting of Decision Sciences Institute. In addition, he has served as ad hoc reviewer for many major journals, such as Decision Sciences, Information Systems Research, IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, Journal of Operations Management, Operations Research, IIE Transactions, European Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Production Research, and others. He has been certified as CPIM by the American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS).

Research Interests

Chu’s current research focuses on (1) Smart Sensing / Internet of Things (IoT) Technologies and Applications (a new initiation in 2005), especially in data management, complex event processing (CEP) & inference, system integration, security and privacy issues, and their applications in healthcare, supply chains, environmental monitoring and smart spaces; (2) Information Assurance and Security, especially in security analytics, wireless security, privacy preserving, cyber forensics and risk management; (3) Data Sciences and Intelligent Technologies, especially for business analytics, financial fraud detection, stress detection, and communication networks design; and (4) Operations and Technology Innovation including Industry IoT, lean thinking, strategic quality management, process reengineering, and supply chain integration and management.

Six of his articles received best paper awards. Dr. Chu received the best theoretical/empirical research paper award from the Decision Sciences Institute (DSI) in 1989, the Research Citation from the College of Business at Iowa State University in 1991, the best paper award from the IEEE Workshop on Computer Vision Methods for Bioinformatics in 2005, the best paper award from the International Conference on Information and Management Science in 2007, the best paper award from the IEEE Conference on RFID Technology and Applications in 2013, the best paper award by the International Conference of Smart Health in 2018, and the best paper award of European Journal of Information Systems (by The Operational Research Society) in 2018. In research grants, Dr. Chu has received more than $ 3 Million (as PI or co-PI) from various funding sources, including NSF, DoD/NSA, Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences, National Science Council of Hebei Province (China), Marine Corps Research University (MCRU, Penn State), Hewlett-Packard (HP) Co., Lockheed Martin Corp., Cisco Systems, and others.
