Biography

Rui Paulo da Silva Martins (IEEE Member’88 – Senior Member’99 – Fellow’08), born in April 30, 1957, received the Bachelor (5-years), the Masters, and the Ph.D. degrees as well as the Habilitation for Full-Professor in electrical engineering and computers from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), TU of Lisbon, Portugal, in 1980, 1985, 1992 and 2001, respectively. He has been with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering / IST, TU of Lisbon, since October 1980.
Since 1992, he has been on leave from IST, TU of Lisbon, and is also with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Faculty of Science and Technology (FST), University of Macau (UM), Macao, China, where he is a Full-Professor since 1998. In FST he was the Dean of the Faculty from 1994 to 1997 and he has been Vice-Rector of the University of Macau since 1997. From September 2008, after the reform of the UM Charter, he was nominated after open international recruitment as Vice-Rector (Research) until August 31, 2013. Within the scope of his teaching and research activities he has taught 20 bachelor and master courses and has supervised 24 theses, Ph.D. (11) and Masters (13). He has published: 16 books, co-authoring (5) and co-editing (11), plus 5 book chapters; 204 refereed papers, in scientific journals (38) and in conference proceedings (166); as well as other 70 academic works, in a total of 295 publications. He has co-authored 3 US Patents (1 issued in 2009 and 2 in 2011) and has also submitted other 4 (1 “patent pending” and 3 under application). He has created the Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI Research Laboratory of UM: http://www.amsv.umac.mo, recently elevated to State Key Lab of China (the 1st in Engineering in Macao), being its Founding Director. He is the financial manager, recognized by EU, of a Jean Monnet Chair in “EU Law – Facing the Constitution and Governance Challenges in the Era of Globalization”, unique in the universities from HK & Macao, for the period 2007 to 2010.

Prof. Rui Martins is an IEEE Fellow, was the Founding Chairman of the IEEE Macau Section from 2003 to 2005, and of the IEEE Macau Joint-Chapter on Circuits And Systems (CAS) / Communications (COM) from 2005 to 2008 [2009 World Chapter of the Year of the IEEE Circuits And Systems Society (CASS)]. He was the General Chair of the 2008 IEEE Asia-Pacific Conference on Circuits And Systems – APCCAS’2008, and was elected Vice-President for the Region 10 (Asia, Australia, the Pacific) of the IEEE Circuits And Systems Society (CASS), for the period of 2009 to 2012. He is Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs, for the period of 2010 to 2011. He was the recipient of 2 government decorations: the Medal of Professional Merit from Macao Government (Portuguese Administration) in 1999, and the Honorary Title of Value from Macao SAR Government (Chinese Administration) in 2001. In July 2010 was elected, unanimously, as Corresponding Member of the Portuguese Academy of Sciences, in the class of Sciences, 7th section of Engineering Science and other Applied Sciences:
