Kaibin Huang received the B.Eng. (first-class hons.) and the M.Eng. from the National University of Singapore, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin), all in electrical engineering. Since Jan. 2014, he has been an assistant professor in the Dept. of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) at The University of Hong Kong. He is an adjunct professor in the School of EEE at Yonsei University in S. Korea. He used to be a faculty member in the Dept. of EEE at Yonsei University. His research interests focus on the analysis and design of wireless networks using stochastic geometry and multi-antenna techniques.

He frequently serves on the technical program committees of major IEEE conferences in wireless communications. He has been the technical chair/co-chair for the IEEE CTW 2013, the Comm. Theory Symp. of IEEE GLOBECOM 2014, and the Adv. Topics in Wireless Comm. Symp. of IEEE/CIC ICCC 2014 and has been the track chair/co-chair for IEEE PIMRC 2015, IEE VTC Spring 2013, Asilomar 2011 and IEEE WCNC 2011. Currently, he is an editor for IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (JSAC) series on Green Communications and Networking, IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters. He was also a guest editor for the JSAC special issues on communications powered by energy harvesting and an editor for IEEE/KICS Journal of Communication and Networks (2009-2015). He is an elected member of the SPCOM Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. Dr. Huang received the 2015 IEEE ComSoc Asia Pacific Outstanding Paper Award, Outstanding Teaching Award from Yonsei, Motorola Partnerships in Research Grant, the University Continuing Fellowship from UT Austin, and a Best Paper Award from IEEE GLOBECOM 2006.
