Joon Wayn Cheong is currently a Senior Research Associate (Postdoc) at the School of Electrical Engineering, University of New South Wales (UNSW). He received his PhD in 2012) and BE (2008) from UNSW Sydney. He is currently involved in Univ. Sydney and UNSW Sydney's CUAVA satellite mission and was the Technical Lead for UNSW’s Cubesat mission (UNSW-EC0) and built the first two Australian Cubesats to become operational in space. His research combines GNSS, phased array and signal processing theories with application towards GNSS interference mitigation, GNSS weak signal acquisition, reflectometry-based remote sensing, embedded systems and vehicular networked-navigation.
