“I am always amazed by the creativity and capability of our students,” says Desmond. “For example, I supervise final year students’ capstone projects and am always surprised by the clever solutions my students come up with.”

It’s so nice to see our graduates become successful in their career and contribute to our society and community.”

After working for National ICT Australia - Victoria Research Laboratory, Melbourne University and Stanford University, where he was a Visiting Assistant Professor, Desmond started at RMIT as a Lecturer.

He was attracted to work for RMIT for its world-class facilities, both for research and teaching, for its industry-focused approach and for its inclusive, collaborative and supportive environment.

“The electronics lab is one of the best teaching labs available supporting hands-on experience,” he says. “The lab has modern portable equipment, enabling students to run experiments from home.”

Working at RMIT is a joy. I can realise my career goals and at the same time make contributions to society.”

The most exciting part of his job is contributing to the state-of-the-art principles and technologies in the telecommunications engineering field to support emerging applications, such as online interactive education, 4K or even 8K television, virtual reality and augmented reality, video gaming, and remote healthcare.

“Telecommunications engineering looks into advanced technologies that underpin our digital life and community, ranging from mobile communications, high-speed Internet, Internet of Things, to radar and space satellite communications.

“Advancing our communication networks is really exciting to me because it can help people in their everyday lives.”

That passion brings Desmond to the classroom where he works closely with individual students to help achieve their full potential.

“An education can help you figure out what you want to do in life, in addition to learning advanced knowledge and skills in your field,” he says. “There are so many career paths available and I would recommend to students to explore different options before finding your real interest and to dream big.”
