Biography

Derrick is currently a Scientia Fellow and a Senior Lecturer (Tenured Associate Professor in U.S. system).

 

Derrick received his Bachelor of Engineering degree with First Class Honors in Electronic Engineering from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2006. In Jul. 2008, he got his Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) degree from the same university under the supervision of Prof. Vincent K. N. Lau. He finished his Ph.D. in the ECE department of The University of British Columbia (UBC) under the guidance of Prof. Robert Schober in Nov. 2012. He was a Senior Research Fellow of Institute for Digital Communications (IDC) at Friedrich-Alexander-University, Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. From 2017-2019, he served as an ARC DECRA Research Fellow. Dr. Ng received the Best Paper Awards at the IEEE TCGCC Best Journal Paper Award 2018, INISCOM 2018, IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) 2018,  IEEE International Conference on Computing, Networking and Communications (ICNC) 2016,  IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC) 2012, the IEEE Global Telecommunication Conference (Globecom) 2011, and the IEEE Third International Conference on Communications and Networking in China 2008.  He has been serving as an editorial assistant to the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Communications from Jan. 2012 to Dec. 2019. He is now serving as an editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications,  the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, and an area editor for the IEEE Open Journal of the Communications Society. Also, he is listed as a Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate Analytics since 2018. His research outcomes have attracted >12,700 citations with h-index: 55 (Google Scholar, as of Nov. 11, 2020).   He is an IEEE Fellow (Class 2021).
