Professor Kainam Thomas Wong was elected a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America in recognition of his contribution to the signal processing of acoustic vector sensor arrays.(See:https://acousticalsociety.org/congratulations-to-the-following-asa-members-who-were-elected-fellows-at-the-spring-2020-meeting/）
Prof. Wong is a full-time professor and master's tutor of School of General Engineering. He graduated from Purdue University with a doctorate degree in Computer Engineering and has worked in Nanyang Technological University, Chinese University of Hong Kong, University of Waterloo and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He is a fellow of the British Institute of Engineering and Technology and an editorial board member of several SCI top journals, such as Circuits, Systems and Signal Processing, IEEE Transactions on Signaling (USA), and IEEE Trans. Aerospace & Electronic Systems (USA). He has long been dedicated to the study of signal processing in electromagnetic/acoustic systems and has a record of over 100 SCI papers. Since joining SGE in 2018, he has been lecturing on Circuits, Analogue Electronic Circuits and Digital Circuits, Numerical Analysis in Engineering, and has tutoring students on their research.
Founded in 1929, the American Acoustics Society (ASA) is the world's oldest, largest and most active acoustic group. After 1931, it joined other three academic groups in forming the American Institute of Physics, the world's leading publishing organization for physical science. ASA currently has 7,500 members. Its journal, Journal of the Acoustics Society of America, is prestigious and an important source of theoretical and practical research in the field of interdisciplinary acoustics. The journal covers linear and nonlinear acoustics, aeronautical acoustics, hydro acoustics and ocean acoustics, ultrasound and quantum acoustics, architectural and structural acoustics and vibration, engineering acoustics, acoustic sensing and measurement instruments, biology acoustics and other fields. The publication is intended for scientists such as physicists, life scientists, engineers, psychologists, physiologists etc.
