Shuang-Hua Yang joined Loughborough University in 1997 as a research assistant, and progressing to a research fellow in 1999, a lecturer in 2000, a senior lecturer in 2003 and a professor in 2006. His educational history originated in China where he received a BSc in 1983, an MSc in 1986, both from the Petroleum University and a PhD in 1991 from Zhejiang University. He was awarded a Doctor of Science degree, a higher doctorate degree, in 2014 from Loughborough University to recognize his scientific achievement in his academic career. Shuang-Hua Yang has been a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College since 2006, a fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) since 2014, a fellow of the Institute of Measurement and Control since 2005, and a senior member of IEEE since 2003. Working with his national and international collaborators he has organised many international conferences and special sessions. He was awarded the 2010 Honeywell Prize by the Institute of Measurement and Control in the UK in recognition of his contribution to home automation research. The energy harvesting device which was invented by him was exhibited at EcoBuild 2011 held in London and was patented in 2009. He was the winner of the Creativity Award at the International Exhibition Contest on DSP (Digital Signal Processing) Creative Designs held in Taiwan in 2005 for his project entitled “Remote monitoring and control of intelligent home environments”. Shuang-Hua Yang's research work on wireless network based monitoring and control is seminal in the field of wireless communication, and has led to a whole new sub-field, entitled wireless monitoring and control, which has had high impact in both research and commercial technology.
