Short Biography

Hsi-Pin Ma (M’98) received the B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the National Taiwan University, Taiwan, in 1995 and 2002. At the summer of 2000, he interned at Siemens Telecommunication Systems Limited, for feasibility study and establishment of a dual-mode base station for WCDMA and cdma2000. Since 2003, he has been with the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, where he is currently as a Professor. In NTHU, Dr. Ma has served as Associate Chair and Interim Chair of EE Department, and is currently Vice Dean of College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and the Director of IC Design Technology Center.

Dr. Ma’s research interests include biomedical electronics and signal processing, telemedicine, wearable and implantable technologies, and health informatics. For communications, he continues to focus on the system design, signal processing, and SoC implementation for advanced MIMO and cognitive radios. He has published 15 journal and 60 conference papers, and 8 international patents. He has got 3 times outstanding publication awards from NTHU and 1 excellent project award from National SoC Program, National Science Council. He has also four cases of technology transfer to the industries.
