Lab Director (or Principal Investigator)

Y.-W. Peter Hong received his B.S. degree from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, in 1999, and his Ph.D. degree from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 2005, both in electrical engineering. He joined the Institute of Communications Engineering and the Department of Electrical Engineering at National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, in Fall 2005, where he is now a Full Professor. His research interests include cooperative and relay communications, physical layer secrecy, distributed signal processing for sensor networks, and PHY-MAC cross-layer designs for wireless networks.

Dr. Hong received the best paper award for young authors from the IEEE IT/COM Society Taipei/Tainan chapter in 2005, the best paper award among unclassified papers in MILCOM 2005, and the Junior Faculty Research Award from the College of EECS and from National Tsing Hua University in 2009 and 2010, respectively. He also received the IEEE Communication Society Asia-Pacific Outstanding Young Researcher Award in 2010, the Y. Z. Hsu Scientific Paper Award and the NSC Wu Ta-You Memorial Award in 2011, and the CIEE Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer Award in 2012. Dr. Hong is currently an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing and for IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security.

Lab Introduction

The collaborative communications research group (CCRG) led by Prof. Yao-Win Peter Hong at National Tsing Hua University is engaged in theoretical and practical studies involving multiuser wireless communication systems. The tenet of our research works is to examine the interaction between users in a multiuser wireless system and to develop advanced communications and signal processing techniques to resolve challenges caused by user competition and to exploit (or to incentivize) collaboration among users. Our recent research activities include: cooperative and relay communications, physical layer secrecy, green/energy harvesting communications, and signal processing for sensor networks.
