previouspausenext

Prof. Thierry Blu and Prof. Liew Soung-chang of the Faculty of Engineering have been elected Fellows of the prestigious Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in 2012 for their extraordinary accomplishments in scientific research. This brings the total number of IEEE Fellows in CUHK to 28, the highest among all institutions in Hong Kong.

Prof. Thierry Blu from the Department of Electronic Engineering was named an IEEE Fellow for his fundamental contributions to approximation theory in signal and image processing. Professor Blu has received several best paper awards from the IEEE Signal Processing Society. In 2007, he transferred his patented research on the interpolation of ‘sparse signals’ to a large international wireless telecommunications corporation, Qualcomm Inc., for applications in Ultra Wide Band communications. Professor Blu has been focusing his research on the optimization of the representation of signals from digital samples, multi-scale signal processing and the restoration of images. His research has yielded fruitful results which are widely applied in biomedical imaging.

Prof. Liew Soung-chang from the Department of Information Engineering was recognized by IEEE for his contributions to wireless communications and networking. In 1993, he initiated and built the first inter-university ATM network tested in Hong Kong. Professor Liew’s research team pioneered the concept of Physical-layer Network Coding, and proposed Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Veno, a version of TCP to improve its performance over wireless networks which has been incorporated into a release of Linux OS. He owns eight US patents.
