Hon Keung Kwan

  • Fellowship in 1986 at the University of Windsor

H. K. Kwan received the D.I.C. and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering (signal processing) from Imperial College London, U.K., in 1981. He is a Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Windsor. Dr. Kwan is a licensed Professional Engineer (Ontario), a Chartered Electrical Engineer (U.K.), and a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (U.K.).


Signal processing (SP) has established itself as an essential tool for a broad range of applications. However, current SP algorithms mostly process a signal as programmed without making use the dynamic information of the signal to process intelligently. Intelligent signal processing (ISP) that combines the computing power of a SP algorithm and the brain-like intelligence to process a signal will offer an unparalleled performance. The current research of Dr. Kwan aims to advance the theory and techniques of ISP, and their applications in genomic sequences and medical images.
