Géza Kolumbán, Fellow of IEEE (2005), IEEE CAS Distinguished Lecturer (2013-2014), was graduated from and received his Ph.D. at the Technical University of Budapest and received his C.Sc. and D.Sc. degrees from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. He spent 15 years in the telecommunications industry where he developed microwave circuits, PLL-based frequency synthesizers and was involved in many system engineering projects from satellite telecommunications to microwave digital radio systems. After joining the university education he showed that chaos may exist in autonomous PLLs and established noncoherent chaotic communications as a brand new research direction. He developed DCSK and FM-DCSK, the most popular chaotic modulation schemes. Two of his papers published on noncoherent chaos-based communications have been ranked in top-cited IEEE Trans. CAS-I articles. His paper on Software Defined Electronics (SDE) won the ICT Express Best Paper Award in 2017. He has been a visiting professor and researcher to UC Berkeley, PolyU and CityU in Hong Kong, University College Dublin and Cork, Ireland, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland, INSA-LATTIS Laboratory, Toulouse, France, TU Dresden, Germany, Beijing Jiaotong University, China. Prof. Kolumbán has been providing consulting service for many companies from Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology to National Instruments. He is a full professor at the Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Budapest, Hungary and is an Adjunct Prof. at the Edith Cowan University, Perth, Australia.
