    Interests

    Dr. Ko received Ph.D. in 2006 and M.S. in 2002, in Electrical Engineering from Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ USA, and B.S.E. in Information and Communications Engineering with the outstanding award from Hannam University, South Korea. After his Ph.D., he worked at Samsung as a senior engineer. In 2008, he returned to academia as a postdoctoral fellow in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Alberta, Canada. He worked in the CCSR, University of Surrey, UK, between 2010-2013 as a research fellow and then senior fellow. Since 2013, Dr. Ko has worked in the ECIT Institute at the Queen's University of Belfast as a Lecturer in Digital Communications. He has authored or co-authored over 40 publications in major IEEE international journals, peer-reviewed international conferences and technical reports. Dr Ko is the recipient of the prestigious EPSRC First Grant Award, given the success funding rate of around 22 % in the ICT theme, in 2014. His research is in the area of air-interface technology for the next generation wireless device-centric communications.
