Professor Yang Hao

Professor Yang Hao received the Ph.D. degree from the Centre for Communications Research (CCR) at the University of Bristol, U.K. in 1998. From 1998 to 2000, he was a postdoc research fellow at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Birmingham, U.K. In May 2000, he joined the Antenna and Electromagnetics Group, Queen Mary, University of London, London, U.K. first as a lecturer and was promoted to Reader in 2005 and to Professor in 2007.  Professor Hao is active in a number of areas, including computational electromagnetics, microwave metamaterials and transformation electromagnetics, antennas and radio propagation for body centric wireless networks, active antennas for millimeter/sub-millimeter applications and photonic integrated antennas, graphene and nanomicrowave. Professor Hao has published over 140 journal papers and he was a co-editor and co-author of the books Antennas and Radio Propagation for Body-Centric Wireless Communications (Boston, MA, USA: Artech House, 2006, 2012), and FDTD Modelling of Metamaterials: Theory and Applications (Boston, MA, USA: Artech House, 2008), respectively.
