Prof. Kwai-Man Luk was born and educated in Hong Kong. He received the B.Sc.(Eng.) and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from The University of Hong Kong in 1981 and 1985, respectively.
He joined the Department of Electronic Engineering at City University of Hong Kong in 1985 as a Lecturer. Two years later, he moved to the Department of Electronic Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong where he spent four years. Professor Luk returned to the City University of Hong Kong in 1992, and he is currently Chair Professor of Electronic Engineering. He served as Head of Department of Electronic Engineering from August 2004 to July 2010. His recent research interests include design of patch, planar and dielectric resonator antennas, microwave and antenna measurements, and computational electromagnetics. He is the author of three books, 9 research book chapters, over 260 journal papers and 200 conference papers. He was awarded 2 US and more than 10 PRC patents on the design of a wideband patch antenna with an L-shaped probe.
He was the Technical Program Chairperson of the 1997 Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS 1997) , and the General Vice-Chairperson of the 1997 and 2008 Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference, and the General Chairman of the 2006 IEEE Region Ten Conference.
Professor Luk received the Japan Microwave Prize, at the 1994 Asia Pacific Microwave Conference held in Chiba in December 1994 and the Best Paper Award at the 2008 International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation held in Taipei in October 2008. He was awarded the very competitive 2000 Croucher Foundation Senior Research Fellowship in Hong Kong. Professor Luk is a Fellow of the Chinese Institute of Electronics, PRC, a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, UK, a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, USA and a Fellow of the Electromagnetics Academy, USA.
