ROLLA - Dr. Chengshan Xiao, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, has been honored with a Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

The Humboldt Research Award is granted in recognition of the lifetime achievements of a researcher whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline. The award comes with a monetary fund to allow Xiao to spend six to 12 months collaborating with research experts at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany.

Xiao was selected for the award based on his achievements in wireless communications research. His wireless fading channel models have been widely adopted by researchers in academia and engineers in industry. Two of his patented algorithms have been implemented in cellular radio products after successful technical field trials and network integration.

Xiao joined the Missouri S&T faculty in 2007. Since then, he received six research grants totaling more than $2,000,000 from federal funding agencies. He is currently studying secure communications in fading cognitive radio networks with funding from the National Science Foundation.

Xiao is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He has served as the editor-in-chief of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, the founding chair of the IEEE technical committee on wireless communications, and distinguished lecturer of the IEEE Communications Society. His research interests include wireless communications, signal processing and underwater acoustic communications.

Xiao earned a bachelor of science degree in electronic engineering from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in 1987, a master of science degree in electronic engineering from Tsinghua University in 1989 and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Sydney in 1997.
