Overview


An academic with extensive experience in teaching, governance and research. He has delivered undergraduate and postgraduate subjects on computer/wireless networks; his teaching score is significantly above the faculty and university average. He has successfully supervised a large number of research students (to date, 28 PhDs, 8 MPhils) ; he is currently the principal supervisor of 14 PhD students, co-supervisor of two PhD students, associate supervisor of one PhD student; all his students have graduated on time and produced many high quality publications. His students have landed prestigious academic and industrial research positions. He is a productive researcher with more than 180 research articles (110+ journals, most are in high impact, prestigious Q1 or top-tier journals) in areas such as RFID, Internet of Things (IoTs), sensor systems for targets coverage/tracking systems, traffic engineering, software defined networks, channel access, and energy harvesting systems; in general, his interest is in the optimization of network resources. A key highlight in 2021 is publishing 9xIEEE Internet of Things Journal (IF>9) articles; in 2020, he published 12xIEEE Trans. articles (flagship journals of IEEE). He has won multiple competitive grants and also a large industry contract from Motorola. He holds a number of key governance positions, including the Director of the Wireless Technologies Lab (2009+) and Head of Postgraduate Studies (2010+). He was the director of a major research institute and the Deputy Head of School (Research) and a Research Integrity Adviser (2018 to 2021). He also has extensive industry experience, where he led a team of engineers to deliver on an industry sponsored project, was a Senior Research Engineer at Motorola for a number of years, a voting member of the IEEE 802.15.3 working group, and completed a number of technology transfers to product groups. during his time at Motorola He holds four USA patents.
