Professor, Electrical & Computer Engineering
Ph.D. Electrical Engineering, Syracuse University, 1988
Communication and Signal Processing
Yingbo Hua received a bachelor degree from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in February 1982, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, in 1983 and 1988, respectively. He won a Chinese Government Scholarship and a Syracuse University Graduate Fellowship for his graduate education. In February 1990, he joined the University of Melbourne, Australia, where he was a professor until 2001. He was also a visiting professor with Hong Kong University of Science and Technology from 1999 to 2000. Since February 2001, he has been Professor of Electrical Engineering with the University of California, Riverside, CA. He has consulted for companies/organizations such as Microsoft Research, WA; Defence Science and Technology Organization, Australia; Aeritalia, Italy; and Syracuse Research, NY. He has received major research awards and grants from Australian Research Council, Australian Cooperative Research Centre for Sensor Signal and Information Processing, US National Science Foundation, US Army Research Laboratory, and US Army Research Office. He has trained more than 22 Ph.D. students, 11 masters-by-research students, and 9 postdoctoral fellows. Several of them have become professors at major universities in Australia, France, Singapore and China, and many others are working with industrial companies such as Qualcomm and General Electric. Dr Hua has published over 280 articles in journals, books and conference proceedings. He is a co-editor of the books: Signal Processing Advances in Wireless and Mobile Communications, Prentice-Hall, 2001, and High-Resolution and Robust Signal Processing, Marcel Dekker, 2003. He served as Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing and IEEE Signal Processing Letters, Editor for EURASIP Signal Processing, Guest Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Magazine and IEEE Journal of Selected Areas in Communications, and Member of Editorial Board for IEEE Signal Processing Magazine. He served as a member on IEEE Signal Processing Society's Technical Committees for Underwater Acoustic Signal Processing, Sensor Array and Multi-channel Signal Processing, and Signal Processing in Communications. He also served on Program Committees of numerous international conferences and workshops. He was elected to Fellow of IEEE in 2002 for "Contributions to High Resolution Signal Processing and Blind System Identification", and Fellow of AAAS in 2011 for "distinguished contributions to research, teaching and services in signal processing and its applications". His current research interests span signal processing and its applications, wireless communications and networking, remote sensing and sensor networks.
