Xianming QING received the B. Eng from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), China, in 1985, and the PhD from Chiba University, Japan, in 2010.

During 1987–1996, Dr. Qing was with UESTC for teaching and research and appointed as a lecturer in 1990 and an associate professor in 1995. He joined National University of Singapore (NUS) in 1997 as a research scientist. Since 1998, he has been with the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R, formerly known as CWC and ICR), Singapore. He is currently holding the position of senior scientist and the leader of the Antenna System Lab. His main research interests are antenna design and characterization for wireless applications. In particular, his current R&D focuses on small and broadband antennas/arrays for wireless systems, such as ultra-wideband (UWB) systems, radio frequency identification (RFID) systems and medical imaging systems, microwave, mmW, submmW, and THz imaging systems.

Dr. Qing has authored and co-authored more than 210 technical papers published in international journals or presented at international conferences, and 7 book chapters. He is holding 10 granted and filed patents. He received six Science and Technology Advancement Awards in P. R. China from 1987 to 1997. He is also the recipient of the Singapore IES Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award 2006, 2013 and 2014, Singapore Manufacturing Federation Award 2014, as well as International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation Best Paper Award 2010.

Dr. Qing is a senior member of IEEE. He is serving as the associate editor of the International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies (Cambridge University Press/EuMA) and the editorial board member of International Journal of Microwave Science and Technology and International Journal of Antennas and Propagation (Hindawi Publishing Corporation). He also served as the guest editor of the special issue “Antennas for Emerging Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Applications” at International Journal on Wireless & Optical Communications. He severed as the organizer and chair for special sessions on RFID antennas at IEEE Antenna and Propagation Symposium 2007 and 2008, as the general co-chair of the IEEE Asia-Pacific Conference on Antennas and Propagation 2015. He has severed as the member for the RFID Technical Committee (TC-24) of the IEEE MTT since 2009, as the TPC member and session chair for a number of conferences, and the regular reviewer for IEEE T-AP, T-MTT, IEEE-AWPL, MWCL, IET-MAP, Electronic Letters, etc.
