Dr. Hongbo Sun received the B.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees, both in Electrical Engineering, from Nanjing University of Science & Technology, China, in 1997 and 2002, respectively. He joined the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, in 2002 as a Research Fellow. Presently, he is a Senior Research Scientist and Principal Investigator in Temasek Laboratories at NTU.
He is the Senior Member of IEEE and was the Chairman of the IEEE Singapore Aerospace & Electronics Systems (AES)/Geoscience & Remote Sensing (GRS) Joint Chapter during 2016-2017. Currently, he is serving as the Associate Editor for IET Electronics Letters and the Guest Associate Editor for an IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letter Special Stream. Previously he had ever been the member of IEEE P1672 Working Group for drafting IEEE STD 1672 Ultrawideband Radar Definitions, the Technical Program Committee Co-chair in the 5th Asia-Pacific Conference on Synthetic Aperture Radar (APSAR 2015), and the Technical Program Committee member in many other international conferences such as RADAR 2011, ICARES 2014, OCRA 2016, RADAR 2016, ICARES 2017, and PIERS 2017, etc.
His research interests include passive radar, random signal radar, high frequency surface wave radar (HFSWR), synthetic aperture radar (SAR), as well as various advanced radar signal processing techniques, such as ground moving target indication (GMTI), space-time adaptive processing (STAP), multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), etc. He has authored/co-authored one book chapter and more than 70 technical papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings. He was also the winner of Excellent Paper Award in RADAR 2006 conference.
