Research Interests
  • Wireless Communications, Signal Processing, Estimation, Signal/Pilot Designs, Resource Management, Interference Management, RF Impairments
  • IMT-Advanced Systems, Next Generation Wireless Systems, Cognitive radio, MIMO, Massive MIMO, Advanced Spectrum Access, D2D, M2M
  • Wireless Health Care
Research Activities

Current research activities are in the areas of communications resource designs and management, cross-layer capacity enhancement techniques, spectrum-agile systems, cooperative / relay systems, robust receiver algorithms under practical system impairments, MIMO, Massive MIMO, diversity techniques/systems, device-to-device or machine-to-machine communications.

Target applications of current research are next-generation wireless PAN, LAN, MAN, RAN, LTE, LTE-Advanced, IMT-Advanced Systems, smart-grid, and IoT / IoE.

I serve as an Editor-at-Large for the IEEE Transactions on Communications since 2016 and served as an Editor for the same journal from 2005 to 2015.

In addition to wireless and signal processing areas, I am also interested in research and development activities related to wireless health-care and quality-of-life enhancement technologies.
