Tu Dac Ho
I have been an Associate Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at the Arctic University of Norway (UiT) since 2019. I received MSc and PhD degrees from Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan, in 2005 and 2011, respectively, in wireless communications. I was also an Assistant Professor at Waseda University of Japan (2011--2012), a postdoctoral fellow at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (2012--2014), and a senior researcher at SINTEF Norway (2014--2018). In recent ten years, I have participated in and led nearly ten medium and large scientific projects in Norway and Europe focusing on, e.g., communications in the Arctic and the application of unmanned aerial vehicles in autonomous systems. My research interests include communications and networking, communication protocols, the Internet of Things, wireless sensor networks, cyber-physical systems, network and system optimization, and communications/path planning for unmanned systems. I have served as a committee member/reviewer for many journals from publishers such as IEEE, Elsevier, Springer, Wiley, IET, IEICE, and AIAA and flagship conferences such as GLOBECOM, ICC, and WCNC. I have published over 50 international peer-reviewed publications and book chapters, many of which are in high-tier journals.
I am a Senior member of the IEEE and an Editorial Board Member of Modern Subsea Engineering and Technology.
For projects work, I am currently a vital member of the small satellite strategy project at UiT (https://uit.no/project/cubesat), a newly accepted FRIPRO project in space debris detection and monitoring (https://en.uit.no/project/qbdebris), and leading an EU project (total budget of ca. 2 million Euro) in the areas of developing autonomous energy harvesting technology and sensor data network for new IoT application in the cold regions (https://uit.no/research/elsys#news_795674).
In addition to research, I also have several years experiences of teaching in universities in the leading technology university in Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh University of Science and Technology), Waseda University in Japan, and UiT, The Arctic University of Norway. I am also leading some initiatives in the joint development of Master's study programs with leading universities in Vietnam, Indonesia and India.
Besides research and education, I am also the head of the Master study program at UiT in Aerospace Control Engineering (Master in Aerospace Control Engineering)
