Dr Gwee Bah Hwee is currently in the School of EEE since 1999. He received his BEng (Hons) degree from the University of Aberdeen, UK, in 1990. He received his Master of Engineering and PhD degrees from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, in 1992 and 1998 respectively.

His research interests include Low Power Asynchronous Microprocessor and Digital Signal Processor Design, Digital Class-D Amplifier Design, Bio-informatics Soft computing and Acoustical Noise Reduction. He is the principal investigator of several local and international grants, including the ASEAN-EU University Network Programme (AUNP) grant, NTU-Panasonic research collaboration, NTU-Linkoping University (Sweden) joint research collaboration and Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) projects. He has filed several patents in circuit design and has 1 US patent granted.

He has been an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II and journal of Circuits, Systems and Signal Processing and review committee members for a number of premier conferences, including ISCAS and BioCAS etc. Dr Gwee was the Chairman for IEEE Singapore – Circuits and Systems Chapter in 2005 and 2006. He was the Technical Programme Chair for International Symposium for Integrated Circuits, 2007. He has been the Committee Members of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society DSP, VLSI and Bio-Circuits and Systems Technical Committees since 2004. Dr Gwee is a Senior Member of IEEE. He is currently the IEEE Distinguished Lecturer for Circuits and Systems Society in 2009/2010.
