Building an academic career is a lengthy, convoluted, and challenging journey. In this seminar, I will share the cornerstone of my academic career – my research vision on the ubiquitous networked society – and briefly present my contributions to wireless and molecular communications under this vision. Also, I will introduce how the impact of my research achievements has been extended into the wider community, such as higher education and industry. Furthermore, I will talk about my experiences in community services and leadership, which could be of particular benefits to early-career researchers.
