Wireless InnovationS in Engineering (WISE)


The WISE research group undertakes cutting-edge wireless research at the physical-layer, device-level, and protocol-level. Current research activities are focused on 5G wireless systems, microwave and mm-Wave electromagnetic structures, radio frequency based sensing and energy harvesting, and others.


The research group is led by Dr. Boon-Chong Seet, Dr. Jack Xuejun Li, Professor Peter Han Joo Chong, Associate Professor Tom Moir, and Dr. Hakilo Sabit in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
