Prof Yi Huang has been conducting research in the areas of antennas, wireless communications, applied electromagnetics, radar, measurements, and EMC since 1987. More recently, he is working on antenna developments using liquid and new materials, wireless energy harvesting and power transfer. His experience includes 3 years spent with NRIET (China) as a Radar Engineer and various periods with the Universities of Birmingham, Oxford, and Essex in the UK as a member of research staff. He worked as a Research Fellow at British Telecom Labs in 1994 and then joined the Department of Electrical Engineering & Electronics, the University of Liverpool, UK as a Faculty in 1995, where he is now a full Professor in Wireless Engineering and the Head of High-Frequency Engineering Group.
Prof Huang has published over 500 refereed papers in leading international journals and conference proceedings and authored four books, including Antennas: from Theory to Practice (John Wiley, 2008, 2021). He has received many patents, and research grants from research councils, government agencies, charities, EU, and industry, and is a recipient of over 10 awards (e.g. BAE Systems Chairman’s Award 2017, IET, and Best Paper Awards). He has served on a number of national and international technical committees and has been an Editor, Associate Editor, or Guest Editor of five international journals. In addition, he has been a keynote/invited speaker and organiser of many conferences and workshops (e.g. IEEE iWAT2010, LAPC2012, and EuCAP2018). He is at present an Associate Editor of IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, UK and Ireland Rep to the European Association of Antenna and Propagation (EurAAP), a Fellow of IET, and a Fellow of IEEE.
