  • mobile networking

My courses

  • ATWireless / Fall 2015 - Advanced topics in wireless communications

     Hot Topics in Mobile Communications

    • This course presents some recent HOT TOPICS within the area of mobile networks.
    • The course is modified from 2014 (and earlier) versions to allow focus on updated set of hot topics and trends in mobile communications.
    • We emphasize emerging techniques to be used in future 5G mobile networks to allow for a significant increase in user quality, and network capacity.
    • The course earns 3 ECTS in its short version and 5 ECTS in the long version
    • We cover hot topics for 5G such as “Massive MIMO” , “network cooperation”, “interference management”, and “device coordination”.
    • In the long version, external experts (Intel, Huawei, ETSI) from Industry reveal hot topics in the wireless industry.

  • InfoTheo / Fall 2015 - Information theory

    • Since 1948, the year of publication of Shannon's landmark paper "A mathematical theory of communications", Information theory has paved the ground for the most important developments of today's information/communication world.
    • Information theory studies the ultimate theoretical limits of source coding and data compression, of channel coding and reliable communications via channels, and provides the guidelines for the development of practical signal-processing and coding algorithms.
    • This course covers Information theory at an introductory level.
    • The practical implications of theoretical results presented are put in evidence through examples and case studies.



  • Has received the Fellow distinction from IEEE (2011)
  • Best Paper Award 2012 of IEEE Signal Processing Magazine
  • He authored or co-authored papers winning the 2004 IEEE Best Tutorial Paper Award (Communications Society) for a 2003 JSAC (Journal on Selected Areas in Communications) paper on MIMO systems,
  • 2005 Best Paper (Young Author) Award for Signal Proc. Society journals.
