In this talk we will take a random walk through a range of topics in wireless communications held loosely together by the common theme of beamforming. Subjects to be visited will include multiuser diversity, regularised zero forcing, large random matrices, opportunistic communication, cooperative base stations and massive MIMO. Time permitting we will then discuss the prospects of the mighty North Melbourne Kangaroos in the 2016 season. We will not talk about cricket.
Jamie Evans was born in Newcastle, Australia in 1970. At the University of Newcastle he received the Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and the Bachelor of Engineering degree in Computer Engineering in 1992 and 1993 respectively, and received the University Medal in Computer Engineering upon graduation. He then moved to the University of Melbourne where he received a Masters degree in 1996 and the Ph.D. degree in 1998 both in Electrical Engineering and was awarded the Chancellor's Prize for Excellence in the Ph.D. Thesis. From March 1998 to June 1999 he was a Postoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. Upon returning to Australia he has held positions at the University of Sydney, the University of Melbourne and Monash University where he is currently a Professor and Head of the Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering. His research interests are in information and communications theory and statistical signal processing with focus on wireless communications networks.
