School of Engineering and Digital Arts

Dr Qi Luo received his B.Eng degree in Communication Engineering from Xi'an University of Technology and Architecture (China, 2004), M.Sc degree in Data Communication from University of Sheffield (The UK, 2006) and PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Porto (Portugal, 2012).

During 2006-2007, he works at INESC Porto, Portugal, as a research fellow. He was with Surrey Space Center, the University of Surrey during 2012-2013. Since February 2013, he joined the Broadband and Wireless Communications Research Group, School of Engineering and Digital Arts, University of Kent. He has many year’s experiences in the antenna and array antenna design. He is involved in several European FP7 and EPSRC funded projects, responsible for the design of beam-steering smart antennas for high-speed Ka-band Satcom terminals and high-efficiency/ high-power multi-beam active Tx/Rx onboard antenna arrays (Ku/Ka band) for satellite communications.

He has published many articles and papers in high impact peer-reviewed journals and conferences. He co-authored a book on Circularly Polarized Antennas  (Wiley-IEEE, Feb. 2014, co-authored with S.Gao and F. Zhu), and a book chapter on ‘Smart Antennas for Satellite Communications’ in Handbook of Antenna Technologies (Springer Singapore). Meanwhile, he serves as the reviewers for several international journals and conferences including IEEE Transactions on Antennas & Propagation, IEEE Magazine on Antennas & Propagation, IET Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation, and European Conference on Antenna & Propagation. He was awarded as the outstanding reviewer for IEEE Transactions in Antenna and Propagations in 2015.

His main areas of expertise include phased arrays, smart antennas, reflectarrays, transmitarrays, circularly polarized antennas, electrically small antennas, MIMO antennas, and multiband antennas.
