Teaching

  • He has taught speech coding for mobile communications, signal modeling and coding, radio engineering, advanced topics, and currently teaches statistical signal processing and signal processing techniques for wireless and wireline communications.

My courses

  • SP4COM / Spring 2014 - Signal Processing for Communications

    • The goal of this course is to cover a number of complements to the treatment of physical layer procedures in a wide variety of modem technologies.
    • The details of the adaptation of a number of basic digital communication techniques to some specific communication problems are elaborated. Such details involve for instance multi-rate echo cancellation for full duplex operation on twisted pair telephone lines, synchronization and equalization techniques in a variety of single and multi-carrier systems, fixed point implementation issues of a number of basic algorithms.
    • The extra systems to be covered include xDSL, gigabit Ethernet, powerline systems and DAB/DVB broadcasting.

  • SSP / Fall 2014 - Statistical signal processing

    • The proper treatment of modern communication systems requires the modelling of signals as random processes.
    • Often the signal description will involve a number of parameters such as carrier frequency, timing, channel impulse response, noise variance, interference spectrum.
    • The values of these parameters are unknown and need to be estimated for the receiver to be able to proceed.
    • Parameters may also occur in the description of other random analysis of communication networks, or in the descriptions of sounds and images, or other source signals.
    • This course provides an introduction to the basic techniques for estimation of a finite set of parameters, of a signal spectrum or of one complete signal on the basis of a correlated signal optimal filtering).
    • Finally, we consider a prototype parameter estimation problem: sinusoids in noise.
