Hola, i benvinguts. (Hello, and welcome).
Since January 2008, I am a Visiting Professor in the Department of Information & Communication Technologies at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona, Spain.
I received my Ph.D. in 1998 from Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. Between 1999 and 2007, I was a researcher at Bell Labs (Alcatel-Lucent) in Holmdel, NJ. I was also, between 2005 and 2007, an Adjunct Associate Professor at Columbia University in New York City, NY.
I am a senior member of the IEEE, an editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications, and a member of the IEEE Communication Theory Technical Committee. I also guest-editted the 2006 special issue of IEEE Wireless Communications on Advances in Smart Antennas. I was a member of the organizing committees for the 2005 Int´l Workshop on Signal Processing Advances for Wireless Communications in New York City, NY, and the 2007 Int´l Conference on Access Networks in Ottawa, Canada. In 2008, I am a member of the organizing committe for the Communication Theory Workshop in St. Croix, U.S.V.I.
My research interests lie at the crossroads of communication theory, information theory, wireless communication, and signal processing. A focal point of my work has been MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) communication, at both the fundamental and practical levels. I participated in the MIMO standardization efforts at the 3GPP and IEEE 802.20 fora and co-authored the tutorial MIMO systems for wireless communicationoffered on-line by the IEEE Communications Society. In addition to MIMO, I have conducted research on dynamic resource allocation, interference management, link adaptation, equalization, channel estimation, ARQ, and multicasting, among other themes.
I teach courses on various communication topics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. My graduate teaching takes place under the framework of the Master in Advanced Sciences in Modern Telecommunications offered jointly by UPF and by Universitat de Valencia.
I am interested in interacting with both academia and industry through sponsored research and consulting.
