Yingbo Hua has researched in Signal Processing for Sensing, Communication and Security (SCS) for decades. His current research is driven by the new and potential impacts of SCS on 5G and Future Networks.
He received a B.S. degree in Automation/Control Engineering in Feb 1982 from Southeast University (former Nanjing Institute of Technology 1949-1988), Nanjing, China, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 1983 and 1988 respectively from Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, USA. He was a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Associate Professor and Reader with the University of Melbourne, Australia, during Feb 1990 – April 2001. Following a sabbatical leave with Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 1999-2000, and a consulting experience with Microsoft Research, Redmond, WA in summer 2000, he joined the University of California at Riverside, Riverside, CA, as Full Professor in Feb 2001, where he is now a Distinguished Professor.
Dr. Hua has published more than 350 articles in the fields of signal processing, wireless communications and sensor networks, including such topics as high resolution methods, sensor array processing, blind source separation, blind system identification, reduced rank estimation, principal component analysis, subspace tracking, MIMO relay beamforming, MIMO channel estimation, multi-hop networks, resource allocation, full-duplex radio, and wireless network security. Since 1994, he has served in various capacities on the Editorial Boards/Steering Committee for IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, Signal Processing, IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, and IEEE Transactions on Signal and Information Processing over Networks. He also served as Guest Editor for a number of journals including IEEE Journal of Selected Areas in Communications. He is a former member of IEEE SPS Technical Committees on Underwater Acoustic Signal Processing, Sensor Array and Multichannel Signal Processing, and Signal Processing for Communications and Networking. He has served on organizing and technical committees for numerous international conferences and workshops since 1992. He was elected to Fellow of IEEE in 2002 and Fellow of AAAS in 2011.
Professor Hua has supervised more than 50 of Ph.D. students, visiting Ph.D. students, postdoctoral fellows and visiting postdoctoral scholars.
