Prof LU Yilong is currently in the School of School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He received the B.Eng degree in January 1982 from Harbin Institute of Technology (Harbin, China), the M.Eng degree in November 1984 from Tsinghua University (Beijing, China), and the Ph.D degree in November 1991 from University College of London (London, UK). All degrees are in electronic engineering.

From November 1984 to September 1988, he was with the Department of Electromagnetic Fields Engineering, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (Chengdu, China) as a lecturer in the Antenna Division. He joined the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) in December 1991 and he is currently a full Professor in the Communication Engineering Division. He was a Visiting Scientist at University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) from October 1998 to June 1999.

His research interests include radar, antennas, microwave engineering, array based signal processing, computational electromagnetics, and evolutionary computation for optimization of complex problems. Dr Lu has authored/co-authored 1 monograph, 5 book chapters, and more than 200 journal and conference papers in his research areas. He has been the Principal Investigator of more than 10 research projects since 1995 with a total funding of more than SGD6.5 millions.

Dr. Lu is the Deputy Director of Centre for Modeling and Control of Complex Systems; the coordinator of the Microwave Circuits, Antennas and Propagation research group; and the Supervisor of Communication Research Laboratory and Communication Laboratory I, in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He is also the Programme Leader of the Radar Programme in Temasek Laboratories, NTU.

He is a member of The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a member of Editorial Board for the research journal "IET Radar, Sonar & Navigation".
