Course Instructor
      Kung Yao received the B.S.E. (Summa Cum Laude), M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering all from Princeton University, Princeton, N.J. He was a NAS-NRC Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. Presently, he is a Distinguished Professor Emaritus in the Electrical Engineering Department at UCLA. In 1969, he was a Visiting Assistant Prof. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1973-74, he was a Visiting Associate Prof. at the Eindhoven University of Technology. In 1985-1988, he served as an Assistant Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) at UCLA. In 2001-2003, he served as the Chair of the Faculty Executive Committee (legislature body of the faculty members) of SEAS. In 2007, he was a Royal Society Kan Tong Po Visiting Professor at HK Polytechnic Univ, and in 2012, he was a Visiting Professor at Peking Univ. in Beijing, China. His research and professional interests include acoustic beamforming and array systems, digital communication theory and system, wireless radio system, digital and array signal processing, systolic and VLSI algorithms, architectures and systems, radar system, satellite system, and simulation. He has published over 300 journal and conference papers. Dr. Yao received the IEEE Signal Processing Society`s 1993 Senior Award in VLSI Signal Processing, the 2008 IEEE Communications Society/Information Theory Society Joint Paper Award, the May 2011 issue of Journal of Applied Ecology’s Editor’s Choice (equivalent to a Best Paper Award), the 2012 JCN Best Paper Award, and the 2012 IEEE Coral Workshop Best Paper Award. He is the co-editor of a two volume series of an IEEE Reprint Book on "High Performance VLSI Signal Processing," 1997. He is the lead co-author of “Detection and Estimation in Comm. and Radar Systems", Cambridge Press, 2013. He has served as Program Chair, Secretary, and Chair of the IEEE Information Theory Society in L.A. and served two terms as a member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Information Theory Society. Dr. Yao was a member of the VLSI Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. He was also the Chair of the Technical Program and the General Chair of the 1990 and 1992 IEEE Workshop on VLSI Signal Processing, and ACM-IPSN 2005. He has organized and chaired various sessions in communications, signal/array processing, VLSI, and wireless radio for IEEE and SPIE conferences. He is a Life Fellow of IEEE. Dr. Yao was a member of UCLA NSF funded Center for Embedded Sensing Networking (CENS) from 2002-2012, and his research in recent years has been funded by NSF, DARPA, MURI, JPL, STM, UC-Discovery, UC MICRO, and Raytheon. He also has extensive practical system experiences in acoustical sensor networks, digital/satellite/wireless/cellular communication engineering, DSP, radar system, link budget analysis, and systolic and microphone array designs. He has worked or consulted for AT&T Bell Laboratories, NCR, SRI, TRW, Linknet; in particular, he was an one-day per week Senior Scientist at Hughes Aircraft Company/Raytheon Systems Company for many years.
