Bio

Chengshan Xiao received a bachelor of science degree in electronic engineering from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, China, in 1987, a master of science degree in electronic engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1989, and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia, in 1997. Dr. Xiao is a Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, MO (formerly the University of Missouri - Rolla). He is currently serving as a Program Director at USA National Science Foundation through intergovernmental personnel act assignment. Previously, he was a senior member of scientific staff with Nortel Networks, Ottawa, Canada, a faculty member at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, and the University of Missouri - Columbia, MO. He also held visiting professor positions in Germany and Hong Kong. His research interests include wireless communications, signal processing, and underwater acoustic communications. He is the holder of three U.S. patents. His invented algorithms have been implemented into Nortel's base station radio products after successful technical field trials and network integration.
