    Thesis title:      Error and outage probabilities of micro and picocellular mobile radio systems in fading channels with shadowing

    Subject areas:   Telecommunications, cellular mobile radio communications

    B.Eng. (Electrical Engineering) (Honors), July 1995, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National University of Singapore.

     

    My Research and Development Expertise and Experience

    I have over 21 years of research experience in wireless radio communications (includes my Ph. D. tenure) and recent years in smart grids areas, from 1995 to present.

    I have expertise in the research, design and innovation of new technologies for:

    Wireless mobile devices to improve the service quality for mobile phones users.

    Telecommunications base station and relay station (using multiple antennas) to improve the energy efficiency for telecommunication systems and networks.

    Modelling of wireless fading channels for future wireless radio communication systems and internet-of-things (IoT).

    I have expertise in mathematical analysis, probability and statistics, modelling and optimization, which I applied in research to design and develop new engineering solutions, analysis and performance evaluation of telecommunication systems and networks.

    I have many years of programming experience and knowledge in using various programming languages.  These include the MATLAB/Simulink, R for statistics, LABVIEW for digital signal processing, C, Fortran, Phyton, and specialist computational software CVX, to perform analysis, simulation, and improve the design of telecommunication systems and networks.

    I also have very good technical writing and presentation skills.  Throughout my career, I have been promoting educational and technical advancement of telecommunications and wireless radio communications disciplines.  I did that through writing, lecturing in the university, supervising PhD and Master students in engineering, presenting and publishing my research works in international reputable scientific conferences and journals.

    I also have very good planning and time management skills, and I am able to manage multidisciplinary or cross functional engineering or technical projects.

    I have over 17 years of experience in supervising, and advising postgraduate and undergraduate research students in the wireless cellular radio communications and smart grids subject areas, from 1999 to present.

    4 Ph.D.  and 7 Master Degree candidates have graduated under my supervision.
