Yichuang Sun received a PhD degree from the University of York, UK in 1996. He is a Professor of Communications and Electronics (since January 2001), Head of Communications and Intelligent Systems Research Group, and Head of Electronic, Communications and Electrical Engineering Division in the School of Engineering and Technology at the University of Hertfordshire, UK. Professor Sun's expertise and interests are uniquely in the integration of communications, electronics and computing. He has been conducting active research in wireless and mobile communications, 5G and 6G technologies, RF systems and circuits, analogue and mixed-signal circuits, memristor circuits and systems, neural networks, machine learning, and neuromophic computing. He has published some 400 papers in peer reviewed journals and conferences and contributed 10 chapters in edited research books. He has also published 4 text and research books: Continuous-time Active Filter Design, CRC Press, USA, 1999, Design of High frequency Integrated Analogue Filters, IEE Press, UK, 2002, Wireless Communication Circuits and Systems, IET Press, 2004, and Test and Diagnosis of Analogue, Mixed-signal and RF Integrated Circuits - the Systems on Chip Approach, IET Press, 2008. He has supervised over 35 PhD students and research fellows and over 25 visiting scholars and fellows from across the world.
Professor Sun serves on several Technical Committees of IEEE Circuits & Systems Society and IEEE Communications Society. He has been/is Book Series Editor of an IEE book series, Editor of 8 IEEE and international journals and sole or lead Guest Editor of 10 IEEE and IEE/IET journal special issues. He has been on the technical/scientific programme committee of numerous IEEE and international conferences in various roles such as Track Chair, Organiser of Special Sessions, TPC Member and Session Chair. He is a referee for many book publishers, IEEE and international journals and conferences. He has also been an evaluator or panel member of research grant proposals for EPSRC, Royal Society, Austrian, Finnish, Dutch, Singapore and Canadian research councils, and technology patents for USA and UK organisations. He has been evaluator of Canada Research Chairs and professorships for universities in USA, Canada, Ireland and the UK, including Minnesota, McGill, Toronto, and Dublin. He has been an external PhD examiner for many universities worldwide including Imperial College, UCL, Southampton, Queen Mary, McGill, Melbourne, La Trobe, and Nanyang Tech. He has also been/is an external examiner of several UK universities including the University of Oxford for their undergraduate programmes. Professor Sun has been awarded many national and international awards, prizes and honours.
