Biography

“Discoveries come from the resonance of human minds and the creation. It is important to know the Creator. So do read the Bible.”

Professor Ron Hui received his BSc (Eng) Hons at the University of Birmingham in 1984 and a D.I.C. and PhD at Imperial College London in 1987. He was a Lecturer at the University of Nottingham, UK in 1987–90. In 1990, he joined the University of Technology, Sydney, and was appointed Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney, in 1992, where he became a Reader in 1995. He joined the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) as a Professor in 1996 and was promoted to Chair Professor in 1998. In 2001–04, he served as an Associate Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering at CityU. From July 2011, he holds the Chair Professorship at the University of Hong Kong and Imperial College London.

He has published over 250 technical papers, including more than 180 refereed journal publications and 10 book chapters. Over 55 of his patents have been adopted by industry. He is a Fellow of the IEEE (2003) and IET (1996). Since 2013, he has been the Editor of the Journal on Selected and Emerging Topics in Power Electronics. He has been an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics since 1997 and an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics since 2007. He has been appointed twice as an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer by the IEEE Power Electronics Society in 2004 and 2006. He served as one of the 18 Administrative Committee members of the IEEE Power Electronics Society and was the Chairman of its Constitution and Bylaws Committee from 2002-2010. He received the Excellent Teaching Award at CityU in 1998 and the Earth Champion Award in 2008. He won an IEEE Best Paper Award from the IEEE IAS Committee on Production and Applications of Light in 2002, and two IEEE Power Electronics Transactions Prize Paper Awards for his publications on Wireless Battery Charging Platform Technology in 2009 and on LED system theory in 2010. His inventions on wireless charging platform technology underpin key dimensions of Qi, the world's first wireless power standard, with freedom of positioning and localized charging features for wireless charging of consumer electronics.

In Nov. 2010, he received the IEEE Rudolf Chope R&D Award from the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society and the IET Achievement Medal (The Crompton Medal). He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences & Engineering, and the recipient of the 2015 IEEE William E. Newell Award.
