My research interests are in the broad area of digital communications, statistical signal processing, and wireless transmission systems including

  • Optimum detector structures
  • Low-complexity receivers with high performance
  • Channel estimation and equalization
  • MIMO systems and space-time coding
  • Interference suppression
  • Interference alignment
  • SC-FDMA and SC/FDE transmission schemes
  • Resource allocation and user grouping
  • Relaying and physical layer network coding
  • Cognitive radio
  • THz communications
  • Magnetic induction based communications and power transfer
  • Transmission techniques for the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Adaptive, blind and iterative algorithms
  • Parameter estimation
  • Wireless systems: GSM/EDGE, GSM VAMOS, WLAN, UMTS/HSPA, LTE-A, and Wireless Underground Sensor Networks (WUSNs)

Students enrolled at University of Erlangen-Nürnberg which are interested in doing a thesis in these fields are welcome to contact me.
