Biography

Ha Nguyen received the B.Eng. degree from the Hanoi University of Technology (HUT), Hanoi, Vietnam, in 1995, the M.Eng. degree from the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Bangkok, Thailand, in 1997, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB, Canada, in 2001, all in electrical engineering. He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Canada, in 2001 and became a full Professor in 2007. He currently holds the position of NSERC/Cisco Industrial Research Chair in Low-Power Wireless Access for Sensor Networks. His research interests fall into broad areas of Communication Theory, Wireless Communications, and Statistical Signal Processing. Dr. Nguyen was an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications and IEEE Wireless Communications Letters during 2007-2011 and 2011-2016. respectively. He currently serves as a Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology. He was a Co-chair for the Multiple Antenna Systems and Space-Time Processing Track, IEEE Vehicular Technology Conferences (Fall 2010, Ottawa, ON, Canada and Fall 2012, Quebec, QC, Canada), Lead Co-chair for the Wireless Access Track, IEEE Vehicular Technology Conferences (Fall 2014, Vancouver, BC, Canada), Lead Co-chair for the Multiple Antenna Systems and Cooperative Communication Track, IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (Fall 2016, Montreal, QC, Canada), and Technical Program Co-chair for Canadian Workshop on Information Theory (2015, St. John's NL, Canada). He is a coauthor, with Ed Shwedyk, of the textbook "A First Course in Digital Communications" (published by Cambridge University Press). Dr. Nguyen is a Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC) and Registered Member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS).
