Dr. Peter Chong is currently a Professor and Head of Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Auckland University of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand. He received the B.Eng. (with distinction) in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1993, and the M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of British Columbia, Canada, in 1996 and 2000, respectively. He has visited Tohoku University, Japan, as a Visiting Scientist in 2010 and Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), Hong Kong, between 2011 and 2012. He is currently an Adjunct Faculty at the Department of Information Engineering, CUHK.

He was previously an Associate Professor (tenured) from July 2009 to April 2016 and Assistant Professor from May 2002 to June 2009 at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. Between 2011 and 2013, he was an Assistant Head of Division of Communication Engineering. Between 2013 and 2016, he was a Director of Infinitus, Centre for Infocomm Technology. He was the recipient of ‘EEE Teaching Excellence Award’ and ‘Nanyang Award Excellence in Teaching’ in 2010, and ‘Nanyang Education Award (College)’ in 2015. In 2015, he became a Fellow of the Teaching Excellence Academy in NTU. From February 2001 to May 2002, he was with the Radio Communications Laboratory at Nokia Research Center, Finland. Between July 2000 and January 2001, he worked in the Advanced Networks Division at Agilent Technologies Canada Inc., Canada. He is the Co-Founder of P2 Wireless Technology based in Hong Kong.

His research interests are in the areas of mobile communications systems including radio resource management, multiple access, MANETs/VANETs, multihop cellular networks and green radio networks.
