Cyril Leung received the B.Sc.(honours) degree from Imperial College, University of London, UK, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
He has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Department of Systems Engineering and Computing Science, Carleton University. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UBC. He served as Associate Dean, Research and Graduate Studies, in the Faculty of Applied Science from 2008 to 2011. His current research interests are in wireless communications systems as well as technologies to support active independent living for the elderly.
