Dr Kwan-Wu Chin is an Associate Professor at the University of Wollongong. He obtained his Bachelor of Science with First Class Honours from the Curtin University of Technology, Australia. He then pursued his PhD at the same university, where he graduated with distinction and the vice-chancellors commendation. After obtaining his PhD, he joined Motorola Research Lab as a senior research engineer, where he developed zero configuration home networking protocols and designed new medium access control protocols for wireless sensor networks and next generation bandwidth managers. In addition, he filed nine US patents and won a major grant from DARPA. He was also a voting member of the IEEE 802.15.3 group. In 2004 he joined the University of Wollongong as a Senior Lecturer before being promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in 2011. He is also the Head of Postgraduate Studies for the School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering, and the director of the ! W ireless Technologies Lab (WTL). His current research areas include medium access control protocols for wireless networks, resource allocation algorithms/policies for communications networks, routing protocols, energy harvesting systems, wireless sensor networks and Internet of Things. To date, he holds four US patents, and has published more than 100 conference and journal articles.
