Biography Chan H. See received a first class B.Eng. Honours degree in Electronic, Telecommunication and Computer Engineering and a Ph.D. degree from the University of Bradford, UK. Currently, He is an Associate Professor in School of Computing, Engineering & the Built Environment, Edinburgh Napier University, UK. Previously, he was head of Electrical Engineering & Mathematics within the School of Engineering and the Built Environment from 2019 to 2022. Prior to joining Napier, he was a Senior Lecturer (Programme Leader) in School of Engineering, University of Bolton, UK. He led the development of the new BEng (Hons) Electrical & Electronic Programme and two Degree Apprenticeships, i.e. Electrical/Electronic Technical Support Engineer and Embedded Electronic Systems Development Engineer, as well as to set up new electrical & electronic laboratories within the National Centre for Motorsport Engineering (NCME). All these programmes are accredited by the IET under his leadership. His teaching covers embedded systems, instrumentation Systems, Communication Electronics, Mobile and microwave communications, and Wireless Sensors and IoT.
His research interests cover Internet of Things (IoTs), wireless sensor network system design, acoustic/microwave sensors, antennas, microwave wireless power transfer, computational electromagnetics, and microwave circuits. He has published over 140 peer-reviewed journal articles and over 140 conference papers. He is a co-author for one book and five book chapters. He was named in the recent 2022 edition of the Stanford University list of World Top 2% Scientists.
Dr. See was awarded a IEEE Malaysia AP/MTT/EMC Joint Chapter- Best Paper Award in 2020. He was also a recipient of two Young Scientist Awards from the International Union of Radio Science (URSI, US) and Asia-Pacific Radio Science Conference (AP-RASC, Japan) in 2008 and 2010, respectively. He was awarded a certificate of excellence for his successful Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Yorkshire Water on the design and implementation of a wireless sensor system for sewerage infrastructure monitoring in 2009. Dr. See is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Senior member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (SMIEEE), Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (FIET). He is also a Fellow of The Higher Education Academy (FHEA), a full member of the EPSRC Review College, an Associate Editor for IEEE Access and an Editor for Journal of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Scientific Reports, Peerj Computer Science, PLOS ONE and Wireless Power Transfer journals. According to Web of Science, he has completed over 480 verified reviews and over 220 verified editor records.
