He was a Distinguished Young Scholar of the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the Chang Jiang Scholar of the Ministry of Education of China. He is currently a Chair Professor with Sichuan University, Chengdu. He was selected as one of the Highly Cited Researchers from 2014 to 2021 in both Computer Science and Engineering, ranked 30th in 2019 single year scientific impact and 193th in career scientific impact among World’s top 100,000 Scientists (released by Mendeley Data, Elsevier), ranked 57th among World’s top 1,000 Scientists in Computer Science & Electronics in 2021, and ranked 40th among the World’s best scientists in the arena of Computer Science in 2023 (released by Guide2Research (Research.com)). For his outstanding contributions to decision making theories and methodologies, information fusion and clustering techniques, etc., he has been elected to the Member of EA, EASA, IASCYS, Distinguished Fellow of IETI, and Fellow of IEEE, IFSA, RSA, IET, ORS, BCS, IAAM, VEBLEO, AAIA. He received rewards of Thomson Reuters China Citation Laureates in both Computer Science and Engineering (2014), four Natural Science Awards on Science and Technology from Ministry of Education of China (2007, 2010, 2017, 2019), the Distinguished Young Scholar of the National Natural Science Foundation of China (2007-2010), and National Award for Youth in Science and Technology of China (2007), etc.

Professor Xu has given outstanding service on academic and international professional bodies over the last decades. He serves as the Co-Editor: Economic Research-Ekonomska Istraživanja, and the Associate Editor or the Editorial (Advisory) Board Member for more than thirty professional journals, including IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, IEEE Access, Information Sciences, Information Fusion, Artificial Intelligence Review, Cognitive Computation, Applied Intelligence, and Journal of the Operational Research Society, etc., Reviewer for more than 300 professional journals. He has been invited as the Committee Member of more than 60 internal and international academic conferences, and has been invited to make more than 250 keynote reports at international and national conferences and educational institutions.

He has made great contributions and pioneering work to decision-making theory and techniques, information fusion and clustering techniques, big data analytics, fuzzy systems and applications. He has constructed the fusion theory, preference relations methodology, and decision-making framework based on different information forms, including interval-valued information, linguistic information, intuitionistic fuzzy information, hesitant fuzzy information, probabilistic information, etc. His remarkable work has laid solid theoretical foundation and provided great application prospects for uncertain decision making and fuzzy systems, and has been widely applied in solving a variety of social issues, such as the modeling of complex problems in military field and the risk evaluation of strategic energy channels, and so on. Besides those theoretical studies, He also made important contributions to the area of the whole social resource value enhancement and effect evaluation based on environment and healthcare. Based on the uncertain decision-making theory and methods, he studied the medical health service system in West China Hospital, Sichuan, China and its internal relations, and then he analyzed the path and mechanism of the whole social resource value enhancement of the environment and healthcare. Considering the uncertain decision-making environment and the development of the big data analysis and application, he made the effect and value assessment about the environment and health care social resource integration management in that hospital, and provided positive and effective decision support and reference for sustainable value promotion of medical management.

He has been the director of more than 30 research projects and has participated in several internationally collaborative projects. His work has been presented in 18 monographs published by Springer and 810 SCI or SSCI indexed papers to professional journals, among which there are 116 top one percent ESI highly cited papers and 19 ESI hot papers. His publications have more than 82,000 citations with the h-index of 142 in Google Scholar. His huge scientific record comprises of a very high number of highly cited publications, many prestigious, economically and socially relevant research projects which concern challenging problems faced by science, technology and economy. Notably, his pioneering work in hesitant fuzzy sets makes it ranked first in the top 10 global hot frontiers in the fields of Computer Sciences, Engineering, and Mathematics, 2016.

Professor Xu has a very active involvement in teaching and supervising the new generation of researchers. He has supervised 59 Ph.D. students, 60 M.S. students and 18 Post-Doctors, and maintained close relationship with researchers in Europe for research and students’ joint supervision. He has recommended his excellent students to international and internal academic institutions and universities for further study and work, 23 of them went/go to Europe for joint supervision and academic visits. He has for years actively collaborated with European scholars and researchers, as well as with leading European research groups at various universities and academic research institutes. Especially, he has established long-term and stable cooperative relationships with the Machine Learning Group and the Decision and Cognitive Sciences Research Center of the University of Manchester, and the School of Computer Science, University of Manchester, U.K.; the Research Center on Information and Communications Technology of the University of Granada, the Andalusian Research Institute in Data Science and Computational Intelligence, University of Granada, the Institute of Smart Cities, Public University of Navarre, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya-BarcelonaTech, and the Department of Computer Science, University of Jaén, Spain; the Systems Research Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland; the Advanced Data Analysis Centre, School of Computer Science, University of Nottingham; and the Faculty of Business and Physical Sciences, Aberystwyth University, U.K.; The Romanian Academy; The Agora University of Oradea, Romania; Copenhagen Business School, Denmark, etc.
