LSU Today Flagship Faculty
What was your previous position and where?I was a senior electrical engineer for Motorola Personal Communications Sector Research Labs in Illinois.
What brought you to LSU?I grew up in Taiwan, where we were so used to warm weather. LSU is a beautiful and elegant school full of legends and history, and Louisiana has wonderful weather and friendly people. That was the reason why I migrated from the chilly north to Baton Rouge.
What are your research interests?I have been doing research in signal processing and wireless communications. My research interests include cellular phone design, digital television technologies, wireless electronics for localization, human-intelligent interfaces, and so on.
What do you hope to accomplish at LSU?I hope that we may provide top quality education for both undergraduate and graduate students in the future. Soon LSU would be a fancy name for youngsters to fulfill their academic training and their career dreams. I look forward to developing more industrial collaboration to help students with practical knowledge. I hope to make more and more students succeed in our electrical engineering field and let all of our alumni be proud of our program and our beloved university.
What do you enjoy most about LSU?I greatly enjoy two things here: one of the most beautiful campuses around this country and the people. My colleagues and administrators are always encouraging and wonderful.
What are your major accomplishments?Since joining LSU, I have published around 160 peer-reviewed professional journal and conference papers and served as the principal investigator or co-principal investigator for successful research proposals totaling $1.9 million. I was named an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer and served as a visiting associate professor at Stanford University. Nevertheless, my accomplishments contribute only a small part of the entire faculty's tremendous academic and scholarly growth in my beloved engineering college and electrical and computer engineering department under the dean and chair's excellent leadership. I was very fortunate to join this LSU elite group in 2001 and am very honored to be part of this excellent family.
