Full Members


Dr. Vijay K. Bhargava

My research interests are in the area of Digital Communications, Error Correcting Codes, and Systems and Technologies beyond IMT 2000. Currently he is a professor and Head of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia.

Dr. Lutz Lampe

My research interests are in communication and information theory and signal processing for communication networks. This includes physical layer mechanisms of communications such as multicarrier transmission, space time signaling, and cooperative transmission, basic tools such as compressed sensing and rateless coding, and applications such as ultra-wideband systems, localization, sensor networks, power line communication systems, etc.

Dr. Cyril Leung

My research interests are in the area of efficient, reliable and secure transmission of information in mobile radio communication systems. At the physical layer level, we are interested in the design and performance evaluation of efficient techniques for communication over the mobile radio fading channel. At the data link layer level, methods for efficiently sharing a common channel among a number of mobile users for multiple-access as well as broadcast situations are being studied.

Dr. Victor Leung

My research interests are in the area of telecommunications and computer communications networking. The scope of the research includes design, evaluation, and analysis of network architectures, protocols, and network management, control, and internetworking strategies for reliable, efficient, and cost effective communications. The thrust of the research is to contribute to the development of this emerging global network, with a current focus on wireless and broadband networks and their interconnections.

Dr. David Michelson

My research interests focus on both measurement-based and analytical modeling of the radiowave propagation environment, assessment of the implications for the design of antennas and wireless communication systems, and development of computer-aided instrumentation, data mining and scientific visualization techniques in support of the above. My current projects focus on Earth-space links, fixed links in macrocell environments and short-range links in industrial, underground mine and health care environments.


Dr. Robert Schober

My research and teaching interests are in the broad area of wireless communications. My current research topics include space-time processing, space-time coding, multi-user detection, non-coherent receivers, equalization, interference suppression, coded modulation, iterative processing, and adaptive algorithms.

Dr. Vincent Wong

My research interests are in the area of the design and performance evaluation of wireless networks. My current research topics include routing, medium access control, congestion control, network monitoring, QoS provisioning, resource allocation, and mobility management.
