Yih-Fang Huang is Professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering at University of Notre Dame where he started as an assistant professor upon receiving his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in October, 1982. From July 1998 to June 2006, he served as the Chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Notre Dame.
Yih-Fang Huang was awarded the University of Notre Dame's Presidential Award in 2003, and the Golden Jubilee Medal of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society in 1999. In Spring 1993, he received the Toshiba Fellowship and was Toshiba Visiting Professor at Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan, in the Department of Electrical Engineering.
Yih-Fang’s research interests focus on statistical communications and adaptive signal processing. Over the last two decades, collaborating with his students and colleagues, he has worked on Set-Membership Filtering (SMF) and Identification and developed a group of adaptive algorithms noted as optimal bounding ellipsoids (OBE). His recent interests are in applications of SMF and SMI to multiple-access and wireless communication systems, particularly to addressing issues of interference mitigation as well as MIMO (multiple inputs-multiple outputs) communication systems. He has published over 170 articles in archival journals, proceedings of professional conferences, and book chapters. He was the area editor on Mathematics for Circuits and Filters Handbook (CRC Press/IEEE Press, 1995) and the area editor on Signal Processing for Electrical Engineering Handbook (Elsevier/Academic Press, 2005). He has been on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Franklin Institute. He was Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems (1989-1991) and Associate Editor for its Express Letters in 1992-93. He was Vice President for IEEE Circuits and Systems Society in 1997-98 and was a Distinguished Lecturer for the same society in 2000-2001. Yih-Fang Huang is a Fellow of the IEEE.
