Yingbo Hua Ph.D.
Professor, Electrical & Computer Engineering
Ph.D. Electrical Engineering, Syracuse University, 1988
Communication and Signal Processing
Yingbo Hua received a bachelor degree from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in February 1982, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, in 1983 and 1988, respectively. He won a Chinese Government Scholarship and a Syracuse University Graduate Fellowship for his graduate education. In February 1990, he joined the University of Melbourne, Australia, where he was a professor until 2001. He was also a visiting professor with Hong Kong University of Science and Technology from 1999 to 2000. Since February 2001, he has been Professor of Electrical Engineering with the University of California, Riverside, CA. He has consulted for companies/organizations such as Microsoft Research, WA; Defense Science and Technology Organization, Australia; Aeritalia, Italy; and Syracuse Research, NY. He has received major research awards and grants from Australian Research Council, Australian Cooperative Research Centre for Sensor Signal and Information Processing, US National Science Foundation, US Army Research Laboratory, and US Army Research Office. He has advised more than 45 Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows. Several of them have become professors at universities in Australia, France, Singapore and China, and many others are working with industrial companies such as Apple, Qualcomm and Broadcom. Dr. Hua has published over 330 peer reviewed articles. He is a co-editor of Signal Processing Advances in Wireless and Mobile Communications, Prentice-Hall, 2001, and High-Resolution and Robust Signal Processing, Marcel Dekker, 2003. He has served in a number of capacities on Editorial Boards for IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, EURASIP Signal Processing, IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, IEEE Transactions on Signal and Information Processing over Networks, and also as Guest Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Magazine and IEEE Journal of Selected Areas in Communications. He was a member on IEEE Signal Processing Society's Technical Committees for Underwater Acoustic Signal Processing, Sensor Array and Multichannel Signal Processing, and Signal Processing in Communications. He has helped organizing numerous international conferences and workshops. He was elected to Fellow of IEEE in 2002 for "contributions to high resolution signal processing and blind system identification", and Fellow of AAAS in 2011 for "distinguished contributions to research, teaching and services in signal processing and its applications". His current research interests span a wide spectrum in signal processing, wireless communications and sensor networks.
