Dr. Bahrami wins Firestone Fellowship Award for his research proposal on the study of energy efficiency in future wireless communication networks that utilize three strategies: cognition, cooperation and multi- antenna communication. The project also includes implementing a network emulation platform with nodes that are capable of performing these three strategies. The project will be done in the WCL during 2011.
WCL offers a half-day research seminar on MIMO and cooperative communication networks on Friday Apr. 2nd at ASEC 160. Graduate and undergraduate students are invited to attend.
Dr. Bahrami wins University of Akron Faculty Summer Fellowship for his proposed project on improving spectral efficiency in two-way relay communication networks with correlated multi-antenna nodes. The project will be done in the WCL in 2011 and 2012.
