Biography Kaixue Ma (M’05–SM’09) received B.E. M. E. from Northwestern Polytechnolgical Univ. (NWPU), China, and Ph.D degree from Nanyang Technological Univ. (NTU), Singapore. From Aug.1997 to Dec. 2002, he was with China Academy of Space Technology (Xi’an), where he was Group Leader of millimeter-wave group for space-borne microwave & mm-wave components and subsystems for satellite payload and VSAT ground station. From Sept. 2005 to Sept. 2007, he was with MEDs Technologies as an R&D Manager and project leader, where he provides design services and product development in the related area. From Sept. 2007 to Mar. 2010, he was with ST Electronics (Satcom & Sensor Systems) as R&D Manager, Project Leader and Technique Management Committee of ST Electronics. From 2010 to 2013, he was a Senior Research Fellow and Millimeter-wave RFIC team leader for 60GHz Flagship Chipset project. He is now a full professor in UESTC. As a PI/Technique Leader, He did projects with fund more than S$12 Millions (excluding projects done in China). He is a Senior Member of IEEE and His research interests include satellite communication, software defined radio, Microwave/ MM-wave circuits and system using CMOS, MEMS, MMIC and LTCC. He filed ten patents and authored/co-authored over 130 journal and conference papers (with more than 100 SCI/EI papers including 14 IMS papers,2 ISSCC papers,27 IEEE Journal papers) in the related area and He is review board of ten international Journals. He gave talks or keynote addresses in USA or Japan etc. over 20 times. He received best paper awards from IEEE SOCC2011, IEEK SOC Design Group Award, excellent paper award from International Conference on HSCD2010, chip design competition bronze award from ISIC2011. He received Special Mention Award of emerging Technology, Singapore Inforcomm Technology Federation for the development of the Singapore next generation Wi-Fi Chipset 2012 and Named in precious China “Thousand Talent Program” in 2012 and “Thousand Talent Expert from Si Chuan Province in 2013.
