Atlanta, GA

Hua Wang has been named the recipient of the Georgia Tech Sigma Xi Young Faculty Award. He will receive this honor at an awards ceremony and dinner banquet hosted by Tech’s chapter of Sigma Xi on April 21, 2016. Wang holds the Demetrius T. Paris Junior Professorship in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).

This award recognizes outstanding research achievements at Georgia Tech, as evidenced by publications, program development results, and other research contributions made during the 2015 calendar year. Among his many achievements and recognitions, Wang was honored for his collection of six peer-reviewed journal papers, 15 peer-reviewed conference papers, and one book, all in the field of integrated circuits and systems for energy-efficient, high-precision signal synthesis and analysis.

Results from Wang’s work and that of his students in the Georgia Tech Electronics and Micro-System (GEMS) Lab can be seen in applications such as wireless communications for 5G wireless links and Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, advanced radar systems, and bioelectronics devices. These results have direct impact on industry for both consumer products and defense electronics. Three journal papers were rated as “popular articles,” based on download usages, and one won the IEEE Microwave Magazine Best Paper Award at the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S). Two conference papers were selected as best student paper award finalists of the 2015 IEEE Custom Integrated Circuit Conference.

In 2015, Wang’s graduate students received seven fellowships and awards from several different IEEE societies or best paper or designer awards from IEEE conferences and industry. Wang received the NSF CAREER Award, the Lockheed Dean’s Excellence in Teaching Award, and the ECE Outstanding Junior Faculty Member Award, and he was elevated to IEEE Senior Member in 2015.
