Andreas Molisch


Andreas Molisch, Ph.D. - Professor
Research Interests:

(i) ultrawideband (UWB) communications and geolocation, in particular UWB transceiver structures, modulation and coding, ranging algorithms, performance analysis in realistic (measured) channels

(ii) wireless propagation channels, with particular emphasis on channels for multiple-antenna systems and UWB communications, generic modeling methods, measurement techniques, high-resolution data extraction

(iii) multiple-antenna systems, especially antenna selection techniques in MIMO systems and base-station cooperation methods

(iv) cooperative communications, including physical-layer techniques (virtual beamforming, Fountain code based transmission, distributed space-time codes), routing techniques, and cross-layer design

Biographical Information:
Andreas F. Molisch received the Dipl. Ing., Dr. techn., and habilitation degrees from the Technical University Vienna (Austria) in 1990, 1994, and 1999, respectively. From 1991 to 2000, he was with the TU Vienna, becoming an associate professor there in 1999.  From 2000-2002, he was with the Wireless Systems Research Department at AT&T (Bell) Laboratories - Research in Middletown, NJ. From 2002-2008, he was with Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs, Cambridge, MA, USA, most recently as Distinguished Member of Technical Staff and Chief Wireless Standards Architect. Concurrently he was also Professor and Chairholder for Radio Systems at Lund University, Sweden, and Deputy Director of the National Center of Excellence for High-Speed Wireless Communications.
Dr. Molisch has authored, co-authored or edited four books (among them the textbook "Wireless Communications, Wiley-IEEE Press), eleven book chapters, more than 110 journal papers, and numerous conference contributions, as well as more than 70 patents. He has been an editor of a number of journals and special issues, General Chair, TPC Chair, or Symposium Chair of multiple international conferences, and chairman of various international standardization groups. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, a Fellow of the IET, an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, and recipient of several awards.
