Buon Kiong Lau
Dr. Buon Kiong (Vincent) Lau is an Associate Professor and a "Docent" with the Communications Group at the
Department of Electrical and Information Technology. Since July 2010, he is appointed the Director of Postgraduate Studies at the same department.
Dr. Lau obtained the Bachelor of
Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Western
Australia in 1998. From 1998 to 2002, he did his Ph.D. at Curtin
University of Technology, Australia, on the topic "Applications of
Adaptive Antennas in 3G Mobile Communication Systems". From January
2003 to April 2004, he was a Guest Research Fellow at the Department of
Signal Processing, Blekinge Institute of Technology. He was a Research
Fellow at the Department of Electroscience, Lund University, between
May 2004 and May 2007, and later an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Information Technology (formerly
Department of Electroscience) between June 2007 and October 2010.
Dr Lau is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation and the chair of Subworking Group 1.1 on "Antenna System Aspects" within EU COST Action IC1004. From 2007 to 2011, he was a Co-chair of Subworking Group 2.2 on
"Compact Antenna Systems for Terminals" (CAST) within EU COST Action
2100. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE. Since 2012, he is the Regional Delegate of European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP) for Region 6 (Iceland, Norway, Sweden). He is also a member of the Education Committee in the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S), where he co-organizes the AP-S Student Design Contest.
Dr Lau's primary research interests are in various aspects of multiple antenna systems, particularly the interplay between traditionally separate disciplines of antennas, propagation channels and signal processing.
