Wu Hsiao-ChunBATON ROUGE – The board of directors of the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers (IEEE) has named LSU Electrical Engineering Professor Hsiao-Chun Wu an IEEE Fellow. The IEEE Fellow distinction is the Institute’s highest grade of membership, and the technical community recognizes it as a prestigious honor and important career achievement.

Known amongst his peers as a subject matter expert in the areas of digital video broadcasting and wireless systems, Wu’s research has played a critical role in digital television technologies and fourth generation communication technologies such as 4G-LTE cellular networks.

Wu has published about 190 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers related to signal processing, wireless communications and computers. He has served as editor for many prominent professional journals and as technical program committee chair for several prestigious IEEE conferences. He is a well-recognized scholar in the technical areas of signal processing, telecommunications, video and audio broadcast and computers. His scientific and engineering accomplishments include contributions to intelligent voice interface for cellular phones, coding and modulation techniques for wireless transceivers, signal processing innovations for biomedical applications and nondestructive evaluation of materials and structural monitoring.

Wu obtained a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan in 1990. He obtained M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Florida in 1993 and 1999, respectively. From 1999 to 2001, he worked as a senior electrical engineer at Motorola Personal Communications Sector Research Labs. In 2001, he joined LSU’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.  In July 2007, Wu was a visiting assistant professor at the Communications Research Center in Ottawa, Canada. In fall 2008, he was a visiting associate professor at Stanford University’s Department of Electrical Engineering. Wu is currently an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer and holder of the Michael B. Voorhies Distinguished Professor at LSU.
