Biography
P. Shum received the B. Eng. and PhD degrees in electronic and electrical engineering from of the University of Birmingham, UK, in 1991 and 1995, respectively. After PhD graduation, he stay in the same university as an honorary postdoctoral research fellow. In 1996, he carried out research in semiconductor laser and high speed optical laser communication in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Hong Kong University. Since July 1997, Dr. P. Shum joined the Department of Electronic Engineering, Optoelectronics Research Centre, City University of Hong Kong. In 1998, he has received the IEEE EDS/MTTS India Chapter best paper award for his paper in Photonics-98. In 2002, he received the best paper award at the 3rd International Conference on Microwave and Millimeter Wave Technology. In 1999, Dr. Shum joined the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University. He is the founding member of IEEE LEOS chapter in Singapore. Since 2002, he has been appointed as the Director of Network Technology Research Centre. He received the Singapore National Academy of Science Young Scientist Award in 2002. Dr. Shum has published more than 300 international journal and conference papers. He is the technical program chair of ICOCN 2003 and committee members and international advisor of many international conferences. His research interests are concerned with optical communications, nonlinear waveguide modelling, fibre gratings and WDM communication systems.
