I am currently a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at Queen's University Belfast, and a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow. My specific research interests include massive (large-scale) MIMO, cell-free massive MIMO, and cooperative communications. I have received three prestigious prizes: the IEEE ComSoc Stephen O. Rice Prize in 2015, the IEEE ComSoc Leonard G. Abraham Prize in 2017, and the Best PhD award 2018 by the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP).
