IEEE style biography

David Gesbert (IEEE Fellow) is Professor and Head of the Communication Systems Department, EURECOM. He obtained the Ph.D degree from Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications, France, in 1997. From 1997 to 1999 he has been with the Information Systems Laboratory, Stanford University. He was then a founding engineer of Iospan Wireless Inc, a Stanford spin off pioneering MIMO-OFDM (now Intel). Before joining EURECOM in 2004, he has been with the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo as an adjunct professor. D. Gesbert has published about 300 papers and 25 patents, some of them winning 2019 ICC Best Paper Award, 2015 IEEE Best Tutorial Paper Award (Communications Society), 2012 SPS Signal Processing Magazine Best Paper Award, 2004 IEEE Best Tutorial Paper Award (Communications Society), 2005 Young Author Best Paper Award for Signal Proc. Society journals, and paper awards at conferences 2011 IEEE SPAWC, 2004 ACM MSWiM. He has been a Technical Program Co-chair for ICC2017. He was named a Thomson-Reuters Highly Cited Researchers in Computer Science. Since 2015, he holds the ERC Advanced grant "PERFUME" on the topic of smart device Communications in future wireless networks. He is a Board member for the OpenAirInterface (OAI) Software Alliance. Since early 2019, he heads the Huawei-funded Chair on Adwanced Wireless Systems Towards 6G Networks. He sits on the Advisory Board of HUAWEI European Research Institute. In 2020, he was awarded funding by the French Interdisciplinary Institute on Artificial Intelligence for a Chair in the area of AI for the future IoT.

 D. Gesbert was a co-editor of several special issues on wireless networks and communications theory, for JSAC (2003, 2007, 2009), EURASIP Journal on Applied Signal Processing (2004, 2007), Wireless Communications Magazine (2006). He served on the IEEE Signal Processing for Communications Technical Committee, 2003-2008.  He was an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications and the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking.  He serves on the Scientific Boards of EURECOM and the UCN (User Centric Networking) Laboratory of Excellence (LABEX) in France. He co-authored the book “Space time wireless communications: From parameter estimation to MIMO systems”, Cambridge Press, 2006. He held visiting professor positions in KTH (2014) and TU Munich (2016). Since 2017 he is also a visiting Academic Master within the Program 111 at  the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications as well as as a member in the Joint BUPT-EURECOM Open5G Lab.
