Francis M. Bui received the B.A. degree (with distinction) in French language, and the B.Sc. degree (with distinction) in electrical engineering, both from the University of Calgary in 2001. He then completed the M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees, all in electrical engineering, in 2003 and 2009, from the University of Toronto. He was the recipient of various scholarships and awards, including the NSERC Undergraduate Research Award, NSERC Postgraduate Scholarship for Master's Studies, and NSERC CGS for Doctoral Studies. From 2009-2011, he was the project manager of the Self-Powered Sensor Networks (SPSN) consortium, with a multidisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Toronto and various industrial partners.
Currently, he is an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. His research interests include information security and privacy, statistical signal processing and optimization for communications, as well as biomedical engineering applications. In particular, his research publications are mostly related to biometric security, body area networks (BAN), mobile channel modeling and equalization, resource allocation and optimization for communication systems, wireless sensor networks, electrocardiogram (ECG) applications, and medical imaging.
