Chen Sun (S’02-M’05) received the B.E. degree from the Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xian, China and the Ph.D. degree from the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2000 and 2005, both in electrical engineering. From August 2004 to May 2008, he was a Researcher at ATR Wave Engineering Laboratories, Japan, working on adaptive beam forming and direction finding algorithms of parasitic array antennas as well as theoretical analysis of cooperative wireless networks. In June 2008, he joined the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), Japan, as an Expert Researcher working on distributed sensing and dynamic spectrum access in TV white space. Since then, he has been contributing to IEEE 1900.6 standard, IEEE 802.11af standard, and Wi-Fi Alliance specifications for Wi-Fi networks in TV white space. He served as the Technical Editor of the IEEE 1900.6 standard and received the IEEE Standard Association Award for his contribution in 2011. Currently, he serves as the Acting Chair of the IEEE 1900.6 working group. His research interests include dynamic spectrum access, distributed sensing, smart antennas, cooperative networks, and communication theory. He is the author of Handbook on Advancements in Smart Antenna Technologies for Wireless Networks, 15 international journals, more than 80 conference papers, and numerous IEEE standardization contributions.
