Professor selected as lecturer
Associate professor of electrical and computer engineering Ji Chen was named distinguished lecturer by the Electromagnetic Compatibility Society.
Chen is one of two lecturers nationwide chosen to hold the post from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2010. He will present lectures related to electromagnetic compatibility to Electromagnetic Compatibility Society chapters across the country.
ECS is a division of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Chen said he would give as many as 50 lectures on topics including biomedical electromagnetic compatibility, wireless EMC and electromagnetic computation.
Chen earned a bachelor’s degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, a master’s degree from McMaster University and a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, all in electrical engineering.
After he completed his education, Chen worked for Motorola Personal Communication Research Labs in Chicago as a staff engineer from 1998 to 2001. He was awarded the Motorola Engineering Award in 2000 and the ORISE Fellowship in 2006.
In 2001, Chen started teaching and conducting research at UH in the areas of computational electromagnetics, electromagnetic compatibility and bio-electromagnetics.
Chen has also published numerous articles about electrical devices and their effects on people and the environment. His articles address the possible side effects caused by metal detectors, time-reversal communication in a mobile wireless environment and signal analysis.
