Howard Luong received his BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) from University of California at Berkeley in 1988, 1990, and 1994, respectively. Since September 1994, he has joined the ECE faculty at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology where he is currently a professor.

Professor Luong's research interests are in RF and analog integrated circuits and systems for wireless and portable applications.  He was a co-author of the three technical books entitled “Design Techniques for Transformer-Based VCOs and Frequency Dividers” by Springer in November 2015, "Low-Voltage RF CMOS Frequency Synthesizers" by Cambridge University Press in August 2004, and "Design of Low-Voltage CMOS Switched-Opamp Switched-Capacitor Systems" by Kluwer Academic Publishers in July 2003.

Professor Luong is an IEEE Fellow.  He is currently serving as an Associate Editor for IEEE Virtual Journal on RFIC and a technical program committee member of IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC).  He was an IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Distinguished Lecturer from 2012 to 2014 and an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I (TCAS-I) and TCAS-II  from 2010 to 2012 and from 1999 to 2002, respectively.

Professor Luong is serving on the Engineering Panel of Hong Kong Research Grants Council (RGC), the Technology Review Panel for Hong Kong ASTRI R&D Centre, and the Disciplinary Tribunal Panel (Electricity) of Hong Kong Government.
