Dr Yi Huang is a Professor of Wireless Engineering and is also the MSc Programme Director.

Brief Career

Prof Huang received BSc in Physics (Wuhan), MSc in Microwave Engineering (Nanjing), and DPhil in Communications and Electromagnetics from the University of Oxford. He has been conducting research in the areas of applied electromagnetics, communications, radar, radio propagation and positioning, and antennas over the past 20 years or so. His experience includes 3 years spent with NRIET (China) as a Radar Engineer and various periods with the Universities of Birmingham, Oxford, and Essex as a member of research staff. He worked as a Research Fellow at British Telecom Labs. He has published over 200 refereed international journals and conference papers, and is the principal author of Antennas: from Theory to Practice which was ranked one of the best-sellers in antenna books by Amanzon.com in 2008. Dr Huang has received many research grants from research councils, government agencies (DTI and TSB), charity, EU (FP6) and industry, acted as a consultant to various companies, and served on a number of national and international technical committees (such as the UK Location & Timing KTN, IET, EPSRC, European ACE, and TPC Chair of IEEE WiCom2005 and iWAT2010) and been an Editor/Guest Editor of three international journals. He was an invited speaker at many conferences/workshops (including Oxford Engineering Programmes) and is a Fellow of IEE (now IET), Senior Member of IEEE, and the Leader of Focus Area D (broadband antennas) of European COST-IC0603.

Research Interests

Prof Huang has a relative broad research interest in RF/microwave/THz engineering. He loves both theoretical and experimental work. His recent research has been engaged with 

         Antennas and Radio Propagation: development of various (conventional and novel) antennas from radio to optical frequencies (over the whole non-ionising frequency spectrum), and indoor radio channel characterisation and modelling;

         Wireless Sensors and Imaging: wireless sensors, RFID (radio frequency identification), GPR (ground penetration radar) development, data interpretation, electromagnetic imaging for medical and other applications;

         Radio Communications: especially software defined radio, wireless channel estimation, and radio positioning systems.

         Electromagnetic Measurements and Simulations: EMC measurements, material property characterisation, frequency and time domain electromagnetic simulations and measurements.

Hobbies

He plays badminton and table-tennis regularly.
