About Me

Welcome! This is the personal page of Kwan-Wu Chin (). I originated from Kota Kinabalu, the capital city of Sabah, Malaysia. I graduated from Curtin University of Technology, Western Australia. I also won the top honours student prize. I then completed my PhD with distinction and the vice-chancelor's commendation. My supervisor was Mohan Kumar (now Chair Prof at RIT).

I spent a few years as a Senior Research Engineer at the Motorola Australia Research Center (MARC). Interesting projects I have worked on included ad-hoc routing protocols, low-power sensor MACs, zero-configuration home networking using IPv6, and bandwidth managers for wireless LANs. At MARC I have developed MACs for sensor networks that under went extensive field trials, experimented with ad-hoc routing protocols on a real test-bed that led to a key journal paper, and implemented zeroconfiguration protocols and a IPv4/IPv6 translator for next generation home gateways on the NetBSD O/S. In addition, I filed nine United States patents, and was a voting member of the IEEE 802.15.3 working group.

I am currently an Associate Professor (and Head of Postgraduate Studies) at the School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering (SECTE), University of Wollongong. Feel free to email me at myname [@] uow DOT edu DOT au., where myname="kwanwu"

Wireless Technologies Lab (WTL)

I am the co-founder/director of WTL. The lab originated from Motorola and has a history of close collaboration with the industry, ARC successes, patent filings and high quality publications. Its current research areas include:
