Dr. Buon Kiong (Vincent) Lau is an Associate Professor and a “Docent” with the Communications Group at the Department of Electrical and Information Technology. Since July 2010, he is appointed the Director of Postgraduate Studies at the same department.
Dr. Lau obtained the Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Western Australia in 1998. From 1998 to 2002, he did his Ph.D. at Curtin University of Technology, Australia, on the topic “Applications of Adaptive Antennas in 3G Mobile Communication Systems.” From January 2003 to April 2004, he was a Guest Research Fellow at the Department of Signal Processing, Blekinge Institute of Technology. He was a Research Fellow at the Department of Electroscience, Lund University, between May 2004 and May 2007, and later an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Information Technology (formerly Department of Electroscience) between June 2007 and October 2010.

Dr Lau is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation (TAP), a Guest Editor for the 2011 Special Issue on MIMO Technology in TAP, and a Co-chair of Subworking Group 2.2 on “Compact Antenna Systems for Terminals” (CAST) within EU COST Action 2100. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.

Dr Lau’s primary research interests are in various aspects of multiple antenna systems, particularly the interplay between traditionally separate disciplines of antennas, propagation channels and signal processing.
