CTTC Hong Kong
Ernest S. Lo is the Chief Representative of the Hong Kong Branch of the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC) in Barcelona. He was a Croucher Postdoc Fellow at Stanford University, and got his Ph.D., M.Phil., and B.Eng. (1st Hons., GGA: A) degrees from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
He has a broad spectrum of research interests, including channel coding, resource allocation, and wireless system and architectural design, all with a goal of finding new resources and inventing new technologies for realizing a flexible, spectrally-efficient, and energy-efficient wireless multiuser network. He has also contributed to the standardization of the IEEE 802.22 cognitive radio WRAN system and holds a few pending and granted US and China patents. Some of them were transferred to other companies.
Ernest had been involved in startup projects and pursuit of other interests. He had been consulted by several international and local startup teams working on communications-related products. He helped develop a startup company whose products of intelligent toys were made available in major chain stores and the Space Museum in Hong Kong. He also co-chaired a photography club and organized large-scale activities with other well-known parties.
Dr. Lo has been honoured as an Exemplary Reviewer of the IEEE Communications Letters. He has received three Best Paper Awards, one at the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) 2007, Glasgow, and another two at the IEEE Global Communications Conference (GlobeCom), 2011, Houston, and the IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC) 2012, Paris, respectively. He received the prestigious Croucher Fellowships in 2008 and a few other R&D awards. He has been a TPC member of several top-tier conferences, including the IEEE ICC‘10,11,12, IEEE GLOBECOM‘10,11,12, and IEEE ICCC’12, etc. He also served as an Editorial Assistant of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications - Wireless Series and the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications when it was founded.
