Biography: Chi Hou Chan received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), USA, in 1987. From 1987 to 1989, Dr. Chan was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at UIUC. He joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle, in 1989 and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 1993. In 1996, he joined the Department of Electronic Engineering (now Electrical Engineering), City University of Hong Kong (CityU) as a Professor and was promoted to Chair Professor of Electronic Engineering in 1998. From 1998 to 2009, he was first the Associate Dean and then Dean of the College of the Science and Engineering, CityU. He also served as the Acting Provost of CityU from July 2009 to September 2010. He is presently the Director of State Key Laboratory of Terahertz and Millimeter Waves (City University of Hong Kong). His current research interests include millimeter-wave and terahertz antennas and circuits, terahertz-source generations, and terahertz imaging.

Professor Chan received the Presidential Young Investigator Award from the US National Science Foundation in 1991 and the Joint Research Fund for Hong Kong and Macao Young Scholars from the Natural Science Foundation of China in 2004. He was named an Honorary University Fellow by The Open University of Hong Kong (now Hong Kong Metropolitan University) in 2016 and received the President’s Award from CityU in 2018. Professor Chan was elected an IEEE Fellow in 2002, with the citation of “For Contributions to Computational Electromagnetics”. He received the 2019 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Harrington-Mittra Computational Electromagnetics Award and the 2019 Distinguished Alumni Award from the ECE Department at UIUC.
