M. L. Dennis Wong received his BEng(Hons) in Electronics and Communication Engineering and his PhD from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics, The University of Liverpool, Liverpool, Merseyside, U.K. in 1999 and 2004 respectively. Since October 2016, Professor Wong is now the Deputy Provost for Heriot-Watt University Malaysia.
Prior to his current appointment, he was the Dean at the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Science, Swinburne University of Technology (Sarawak Campus), Malaysia. Before that, he was an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University (XJTLU), Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, P.R.China.
His research interests include statistical signal processing and pattern classification, machine condition monitoring, and VLSI Design for digital signal processing.
Professor Wong is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers Australia (IEAust), a Senior Member of the IEEE, a Fellow of the IET, a Chartered Professional Engineers with IEAust and a Chartered Engineer with ECUK. He is currently the Chair for IEEE Sarawak Subsection and Vice Chair for IEEE CIS Malaysia Chapter.

I started my PhD working on communication intelligence and modulation classification. I then had to work on machine condition monitoring because of funding requirement. Since then I have worked on a number of domains and the highlights are summarised below. You can find corresponding publication here. My research metrics can be found on my Google Scholar profile.
Omnidirectional VisionUsing a catadioptric configuration, one can achieve a 360 degree field of view.
