Hoi-Shun Antony Lui received both his Bachelor of Engineering degree with first class honours and his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia in 2003 and 2008 respectively. Additionally, he received a Diploma in Higher Education and Swedish Docent academic qualifications from Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2010 and 2012 respectively.

In 2008, Dr. Lui was employed as research fellow at the National University of Singapore. From 2009 to 2012, he was an Assistant Professor with the Department of Signals and Systems at Chalmers University of Technology. In 2013, he moved back to UQ where he received a UQ Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. His current research focuses on novel electromagnetic sensing and imaging solutions for biomedical, as well as defence and surveillance applications.
