Lab Director (or Principal Investigator)

Wei-Ho Chung was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, in 1978. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University, Taipei City, Taiwan, in 2000 and 2002 respectively. From 2005 to 2009, he was with the Electrical Engineering Department at University of California, Los Angeles, where he obtained his Ph.D. degree. From 2000 to 2002, he worked on routing protocols in the mobile ad hoc networks in the M.Sc. program in National Taiwan University. From 2002 to 2005, he was a system engineer at ChungHwa Telecommunications Company, where he worked on data networks.

In 2008, he was a research intern working on CDMA systems at Qualcomm, Inc., San Diego, CA. From 2007 to 2009, he was a Teaching Assistant at UCLA. From June to December 2009, Dr. Chung had been working as a research associate in San Diego, California, on wireless communications and unequal error protection for multimedia transmission. His research interests include communications, signal processing, and networks.

Dr. Chung received the Taiwan Merit Scholarship from 2005 to 2009 and the Best Paper Award in IEEE WCNC 2012, and has published over 30 refereed journal articles and over 40 refereed conference papers. Dr. Chung had been a tenure-track assistant research fellow since January 2010, and promoted to associate research fellow since January 2014. He leads the Wireless Communications Lab in the Research Center for Information Technology Innovation, Academia Sinica, Taiwan. In Academia Sinica, Dr. Chung supervises approximately 4-6 full-time postdocs and research assistants, and jointly advises multiple Ph.D. students with faculty members in univeristies.

Lab Introduction

With the rapidly advancing wireless applications, many commercial operations and military functionality heavily rely on the wireless communications. The cloud computing, while leveraging the centralized large data storage and the computing power, requires substantial communications among the distributed entities in the cloud. These applications demand higher data rates and spectral efficiency, which pose huge challenges to the architecture and design at the physical payer. To address those challenges, our lab actively conduct research in the general areas of communications, signal processing, and networks. Specific research topics include LTE-related physical-layer technologies, MIMO precoder/detector design, space shift keying MIMO architecture, spectrum detection, and baseband energy-efficient signal design.

Our lab research agenda has been funded by multiple internal and extramural sources. Jointly with group members and university collaborators, our lab has contributed to multiple publications in highly visible journals and conferences. We are also actively recruiting part-time(with M.S. or Ph.D. studentship) or full-time members(RAs or postdocs). Both domestic and international applications are invited.
