Tzyh-Ghuang Ma (S’00–M’06–SM’11) was born in Taipei, Taiwan, in 1973. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering and the Ph.D. degree in communication engineering from National Taiwan University, Taipei, in 1995, 1997, and 2005, respectively.
He joined the faculty with the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taipei, in 2005, where he is currently a Full Professor. He was with the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA, from 2015 to 2016, as a Visiting Scholar. His current research interests include innovative phased arrays, self-oscillating active antennas, miniaturization and chip implementation of passive circuits, antennas for RFIDs, ultra-wideband antennas and front-end circuits.
Dr. Ma received the Dr. Wu Da-Yu Award, the most outstanding research award for young researchers from the National Science Council, Taiwan, in 2010. He also received the certificate from the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation for his exceptional performance as an Article Reviewer from 2009 to 2010. He was a recipient of the Poster Presentation Award at the International Workshop on Antenna Technology (iWAT), Chiba, Japan, in 2008, and a recipient of the best paper award at iWAT, Hong Kong, in 2011. He is the Advisor of the honorable mention winner in the student paper competition at the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society in 2011. He received the Excellent Young Engineer Award from the Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineering in 2012, and the Title of Distinguished Professor from the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology. He is the author of an IEEE-Wiley Press book: Synthesized Transmission Lines: Design, Circuit Implementation, and Phased Array Applications. He is now an Associate Editor of IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, and an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques.
