Lab Director (or Principal Investigator)

Prof. Hiroo Sekiya

Hiroo Sekiya (S'97 - M'01) was born in Tokyo, Japan, on July 5, 1973. He received the B.E., M.E., and Ph. D. degrees in electrical engineering from Keio University, Yokohama, Japan, in 1996, 1998, and 2001 respectively.

Since April 2001, he has been with Chiba University and now he is an Associate Professor at Graduate School of Advanced Integration Science, Chiba University, Chiba, Japan. Since Feb. 2008, he was with Electrical Engineering, Wright State University, Ohio, USA as a visitng scholar. His research interests include high-frequency high-efficiency tuned power amplifiers, resonant dc/dc power converters, dc/ac inverters, and digital signal processing for wireless communication.

Dr. Sekiya is a senior member of the IEEE and the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE) of Japan, Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ), Technical Institute of Electrical Engineering of Japan (IEEJ), and Research Institute of Signal Processing (RISP), Japan.

Lab Introduction

Our Lab. focuses on the fields of Power Electronics and Wireless Communications. In the power electronics field, we develop high-frequency and high-efficiency power converters, along with their analyses. For implementations of the converters, design automation tool is also developed by ourselves, including magnetic component design tool. In the wireless communication field, we are interested in MAC protocol designs for multi-hop networks: hidden-terminal-problem avoidance, QoS-aware protocol, directional antenna system, and throughput analyses. PHY-layer processing for CDMA and OFDM are also important research themes.

We believe that our researches contribute to the future information-communication society.
