Hello, there! I am the Professor of Institute of Communications Engineering at National Sun Yat-sen University (NSYSU). I received my PhD from the Institute of Communications Engineering, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, in 2004. I joined NSYSU after spending 5 years in industry (Industrial Technology Research Institute, Taiwan and MediaTek Inc., Taiwan). In the five years of industry, I focused on broadband digital transceiver design.

My research style is interdisciplinary and usually combines communication technology, signal processing, data analysis, and prototyping. I am very interested in realizing the results of the research on communication prototypes and test platforms, and most of the technology have been transferred to industry. I have won several awards for Industry-University Cooperation from NSYSU. My papers were selected as the best paper awards by IEEE GLOBECOM 2016 and WCSP 2019.

I am Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Communications Letters, and IEEE Wireless Communications Letters. I received 2018 IEEE COMML Editor Award. My current research interests center around:
