Hola, i benvinguts.
(Hello, and welcome.)
I am a Professor at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, and the head of the Wireless & Secure Communications Group.
I received my Ph.D. in 1998 from Stanford University. Between 1999 and 2008, I was with Bell Labs (Lucent Technologies, now Nokia) in Holmdel, USA. Between 2005 and 2008, I was also an Adj. Associate Professor at Columbia University.
I am an IEEE Fellow, a Highly Cited Researcher, and the holder of the ERC Advanced Grant POSTCELL (2016-2022). I serve as Area Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, and as editor for the IEEE Communication Technology News. In this recent posting, we tackle the future of technical conferences in the wake of Covid-19.
If you're interested in 5G wireless networks, check out the papers What Will 5G Be? and Five disruptive technology directions for 5G, the most cited articles on the subject. And, for a thought-provoking conversation on 5G and 6G, check out this episode of the Wireless Future podcast where I am hosted by Emil Bjornson and Erik Larsson.
Applications are open for a Ph.D. student position within the ITN MetaWireless ; details and instructions on how to apply can be found here. Applications are also open for an industrial Ph.D. in collaboration with Huawei, Germany; details and instructions can be found here.
My research and teaching over the last couple of decades is best summarized by the textbook Foundations of MIMO Communication, coauthored with my colleague Robert W. Heath Jr. from North Carolina State University.
