Professional Biography

Dr. Chan H . See received a first class BEng Honours degree in Electronic, Telecommunication and Computer Engineering and a PhD degree from the University of Bradford, UK in 2002 and 2007 respectively. Since 2013, He is appointed as a lecturer in Engineering (Electrical & Electronic) within the Engineering, Sports and Sciences (ESS) Academic Group. Previously, he was a senior research fellow in the Antennas and Applied Electromagnetics research group within the University of Bradford, UK. From November 2006 to February 2009, he was appointed as a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Associate which was sponsored by Yorkshire Water Services (YWS), UK. This work focused on the development of wireless low cost communication system to monitor the drainage infrastructure owned by YWS. Dr See is a Chartered Engineer and Member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (MIET). He has an NVQ level 4 in Management from the Chartered Management Institute.

Current research interests :

  • Electromagnetic hybrid numerical methods, such as, (MoM/FDTD) and (FEM/FDTD) for complex electromagnetic problems.
  • Antenna/Antenna-filter/tunable antenna/MIMO antenna designs using new materials for wireless communication systems and bio-medical applications .
  • Health issues and hazards on using Mobile handsets/Portable devices.
  • RF and Microwave circuit designs.
  • Optimisation techniques, e.g. Genetic algorithms and Particle Swarm for antenna design applications.
