I am a Cullen Trust Endowed Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. My research expertise is at the intersection of wireless communication, signal processing, applied math, and communication theory. I have an active research program in all aspects of MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) communication including multiuser MIMO, massive MIMO, MIMO cellular networks, and MIMO ad hoc networks. At present I am focusing on millimeter wave communication, with applications to cellular, ad hoc, wearable, vehicular, and local area networks. More information is available here. If you would like to work with me please click the students link for more details.
I teach courses at both the undergraduate and the graduate level on topics such as wireless communication, digital signal processing, statistical signal processing, and multiple antenna communication methods. Of particular interest, I have developed a complete Wireless Communications Laboratory course with lecture notes, textbook, and experiments, now available for the USRP platform. Lectures and lecture notes are available as well.
I enjoy participating and interacting with industry and government through sponsored research, standards participation, and consulting. Please contact me for more details via email.
