Howard Luong received his BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) from University of California at Berkeley in 1988, 1990, and 1994, respectively. Since September 1994, he has joined the EEE faculty at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology where he is currently a professor. In 2001, he took a one-year sabbatical leave to develop a new wireless product at Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., Sunnyvale, California, USA.
Prof Luong’s research interests are in RF and analog integrated circuits and systems for wireless and portable applications. He was an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II (TCAS II) from 1999 to 2002 and a Technical Program Co-Chair of the 2008 IEEE Asian Pacific Conference on Circuits and Systems (APCCAS). He currently serves as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I (TCAS I) and as a technical program committee member of many international conferences including Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC), European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC), Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference (A-SSCC), and IEEE International Symposium on Radio-Frequency Integration Technology (RFIT).
Prof Luong was a co-author of the two books entitled "Low-Voltage RF CMOS Frequency Synthesizers" published by Cambridge University Press in August 2004 and "Design of Low-Voltage CMOS Switched-Opamp Switched-Capacitor Systems" published by Kluwer Academic Publishers in July 2003.
