Born in a family led by a father enshrining knowledge more than anything in life, Chi H Chan moved from Macao, his birthplace, to Hong Kong at the age of six for better education opportunities. The family core values of honesty, integrity and sincerity already instilled in him were further reinforced by his secondary school education at St. Francis Xavier’s College from 1970 to 1977 where he met the Jesuit brothers and in particular, Mr. LAU Yue Sum, his Mathematics teacher and an MIT educated electrical engineer and then an attorney, who inspired him of pursuing a science and engineering career.
Chi went to the US for his tertiary education in 1978 and received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, in 1981 and 1982 respectively. He is indebted to the late Professor Jack H. Richmond who not only taught him electromagnetic theory but also exemplified the true meaning of a world-class scholar, being knowledgeable, resourceful and yet humble. Professor Richmond had written three recommendation letters for Chi, resulting in his admission to the Ph.D. program at Illinois, receiving his first regular teaching position at the University of Washington and his Presidential Young Investigator Award.
Chi received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois, in 1987 under the supervision of Professor Raj Mittra. From 1987 to 1989, he was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Illinois, associated with the Electromagnetic Communication Laboratory headed by Professor Mittra who had created a unique environment conducive to the peer learning and healthy competition among his group members to excel together. Many of his group-mates later became leaders of their respective fields. Among his other teachers at Illinois were Professors Y. T. Lo, S. W. Lee, Paul Mayes, W. C. Chew and S. L. Chuang.
Joining the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, in 1989, Chi was first an Assistant Professor and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 1993. From September 1994 to March 1996, he served as the Group Chair in Electromagnetics, Optics and Acoustics despite being the most junior faculty in the group. Other group members were Professors Akira Ishimaru (member of NAE), Irene Peden (member of NAE), Tom Seliga, Leung Tsang and Yasuo Kuga. He was humbled by his teachers at Illinois and colleagues at UW for their generosity in helping him to launch his career and shape his research methods.
Chi joined the Department of Electronic Engineering (EE), City University of Hong Kong as a Professor in April 1996. He was attracted to CityU because of her reputation in electromagnetic research and on her faculty the presence of Professor K. K. Mei, a guru in computational electromagnetics who attended St. Francis Xavier’s College in Shanghai. Chi was promoted to Chair Professor of Electronic Engineering in July 1998. Originally trained as a numericalist, he learned antennas from Professor K. M. Luk and microwave circuitries from Professor Q. Xue. In March 2008, the Ministry of Science and Technology of China approved the establishment of the State Key Laboratory of Millimeter Waves at CityU in partnership with Southeast University, Nanjing, to formally recognize CityU’s strengths in antennas, microwave circuitries and computational electromagnetics.
Chi served as Associate Dean and Dean of College of Science and Engineering from June 1998 to August 2004 and September 2004 to June 2009, respectively, and Acting Provost of the University from July 2009 to September 2010. After serving the University in various administrative posts for over a decade, he decided to take an extended leave, with a view to fulfilling his research obligations. He will resume his full-time teaching and research on January 3, 2012.
