Gerald Matz received the Dipl.-Ing. (1994) and Dr. techn. (2000) degrees in Electrical Engineering and the Habilitation degree (2004) for Communication Systems from Vienna University of Technology, Austria. Since Jan. 1995 he has been with the Institute of Telecommunications, Vienna University of Technology, where he currently holds a tenured Associate Professor position. From March 2004 to Feb. 2005 he was on leave as an Erwin Schrödinger Fellow with the Laboratoire des Signaux et Systèmes, Ecole Supérieure d’Electricité (France). In 2007 he was a Visiting Researcher with the Communication Theory Lab at ETH Zurich (Switzerland), and in 2011 he was a Guest Professor with Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Electrotechnique, d’Electronique, d’Informatique et d’Hydraulique de Toulouse (France).

Prof. Matz has directed or actively participated in several research projects funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), by the Viennese Science and Technology Fund (WWTF), and by the European Union. He has published some 200 scientific articles in international journals, conference proceedings, and edited books. He is co-editor of the book Wireless Communications over Rapidly Time-Varying Channels (New York: Academic, 2011). His research interests include statistical signal processing, information and communication theory, and big data.

Prof. Matz served as as a member of the IEEE SPS Technical Committee on Signal Processing Theory and Methods and of the IEEE SPS Technical Committee on Signal Processing for Communications and Networking. He was an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory (2013–2015), of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (2006–2010), of the EURASIP Journal Signal Processing (2007–2010), and of the IEEE Signal Processing Letters (2004–2008). He was Technical Chair of the Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers 2016, Technical Program Co-Chair of EUSIPCO 2004, Technical Area Chair for “MIMO Communications and Signal Processing” at Asilomar 2012, Technical Area Chair for “Array Processing” at Asilomar 2015. He has been a member of the Technical Program Committee of numerous international conferences. In 2006, he received the Kardinal Innitzer Most Promising Young Investigator Award. He is an IEEE Senior Member and a member of the ÖVE.
