Biography of Prof. Bang-Sup Song:
Dr. Song received the B.S. from the Seoul National University in 1973, the M.S.
from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science in 1975, and the Ph.D. from the University
of California, Berkeley in 1983.
From 1975 to 1978, Dr. Song was a research staff at Agency for Defense Development,
Korea working on fire-control radars and spread-spectrum communications. From 1983
to 1986, he was a member of technical staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, and
was also a visiting faculty member in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Rutgers
University. From 1986 to 1999, he was a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering and the Coordinated Science Laboratory, University of Illinois at Urbana.
In 1999, he joined the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering,
University of California, San Diego, where he is endowed with Charles Lee Powell Chair
in Wireless Communication.
Dr. Song received a Distinguished Technical Staff Award from AT&T Bell Laboratories
in 1986, a Career Development Professor Award from Analog Devices in 1987, and a
Xerox Senior Faculty Research Award from the University of Illinois in 1995. His IEEE
activities have been in the capacities of an Associate Editor, a Guest Editor, and a
Program Committee Member for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, IEEE
Journal of Solid-State Circuits, IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference,
and IEEE Symposium on Circuits and Systems. Dr. Song is an IEEE Fellow.
