Dr. Yujie Gu awarded the 2021 Kirkman Medal of the ICA


Kirkman Medals recognize excellent research by Fellows or Associate Fellows of the ICA early in their research career, as evidenced by an excellent body of published research.


Yujie Gu has made significant contributions to combinatorial methods for information security, coding theory, and information theory. Her notable research achievements include combinatorial traitor tracing, zero-error two-way communications, private information retrieval and compressed sensing, by ingeniously utilizing techniques in extremal and additive combinatorics, graph theory, algebraic methods, probabilistic methods and information theory. The breadth and depth of her research are quite remarkable.

Dr. Gu is highly productive with fruitful publications in prestigious mathematics and information theory journals and conferences. She is good at establishing intriguing and unexpected relationships between discrete mathematics and information science problems, and further opening up new promising research avenues. She is an outstanding young researcher with intelligence, diligence, strong academic background, and great potential on research work.

Dr. Gu earned her BA in Mathematics from Ludong University, her MA from Zhejiang University and her Ph.D. from the University of Tsukuba. She was a Post-Doctoral Fellow and Academic Visitor at Tel Aviv University and is now an Assistant Professor at Kyushu University.


The Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications is an international scholarly society that was founded in 1990 by Ralph Stanton; the ICA was established for the purpose of promoting the development of combinatorics and of encouraging publications and conferences in combinatorics and its applications.
