Kai-Kit Wong received the BEng, the MPhil, and the PhD degrees, all in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, in 1996, 1998, and 2001, respectively. After graduation, he joined the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, the University of Hong Kong as a Research Assistant Professor. From July 2003 to December 2003, he visited the Wireless Communications Research Department of Lucent Technologies, Bell-Labs, Holmdel, NJ, U.S. where he was a Visiting Research Scholar studying optimization in broadcast MIMO channels. After that, he then joined the Smart Antennas Research Group of Stanford University as a Visiting Assistant Professor conducting research on overloaded MIMO signal processing. From 2005 to August 2006, he was with the Department of Engineering, the University of Hull, U.K., as a Communications Lecturer. Since August 2006, he has been with University College London Adastral Park Campus where he is a Senior Lecturer. He has worked in several areas including multiuser mobile networks, information theory, smart antennas, space-time processing/coding and channel equalisation.

Dr Wong is a member of IEEE and is also on the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications. Dr Wong won the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society Japan Chapter Award of the International IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference-Spring in 2000, and was also a co-recipient of the First Prize Paper Award in the IEEE Signal Processing Society Postgraduate Forum Hong Kong Chapter in 2004. In 2002 and 2003, he received, respectively, the SY King Fellowships and the WS Leung Fellowships from the University of Hong Kong. Also, he was awarded the Competitive Earmarked Research Grant Merit and Incentive Awards in 2003-2004.

Research areas of interest include:

  • Secure wireless communications theory
  • Cross-layer optimisation
  • Performance analysis of MIMO channels
  • Cooperative wireless networks
