I received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering at the Vienna University of Technology, Austria, in 2005. Currently, I am a Research Assistant at the Institute of Communications and Radio Frequency Engineering, Vienna University of Technology, where I am working towards my Ph.D. degree. I am participating in the European Union projects MASCOT (“Multiple-Access Space-Time Coding Testbed”), WWTF project MOHAWI (“Modern Harmonic Analysis Methods for Advanced Wireless Communications”), and FWF project “Information Networks” within the National Research Network SISE. From July to September 2007 I was holding a visiting position at Nokia Research Center in Helsinki, Finland.


My research interests comprise MIMO wireless communication systems in the context of multi-user environments.

I am currently working on
