I received my first degree (1st class Honors) in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Central Lancashire (1997) as an exchanged student from University of Shenzhen (China, since 1996). After my master degree in communication and signal processing at Imperial College (1998), I subsequently stay on to further study in the Communications and Signal Processing Research Group under supervision of Dr. Manikas towards my PhD degree. I am working on space-time processing for wireless communication systems. The main focus of my research project is to design array transmitter/receiver structures and the corresponding modulation/demodulation techniques for the future generation wireless networks (UMTS,IMT2000) that intend to support many more users at high data rate in the presence of severe channel distortions. My study at Imperial College had been made possible by the award of the Oversea Research Studentship, and I expect to accomplish my doctoral study by October 2001.
During my study at Imperial College, I develop research interests in the areas of signal processing and physical layer digital communications, in particular:
- Mobile radio channel modeling and simulation
- Multiple channel communication theory
- Multiuser/multiple access techniques
- Space-time signal processing: antenna array transmission and reception techniques
- Joint channel estimation/equalization/ interference suppression for time- and frequency-selective channels
- Mathematical methods for signal processing and communications
