Stefan Schwarz (S’09-M’14-SM’19) received his BSc. in electrical engineering in 2007, his Dipl.-Ing. degree (MSc equivalent) in telecommunications engineering in 2009, and his Dr. techn. degree (Ph.D. equivalent) in technical sciences in 2013, all at TU Wien. In 2010 he received the honorary price of the Austrian Minister of Science and Research, for excellent graduates of scientific and artistic universities, in 2014 he received the INiTS award in the category Information and Communication Technologies for innovative scientific works with prospect for economic applicability, and in 2020 he received a Kardinal-Innitzer Förderungspreis. In 2019 he obtained his habilitation within the scientific field of mobile communications at TU Wien and in 2021 he was promoted to Associate Professor at the Institute of Telecommunications. Since 2016 he is the head of the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Dependable Wireless Connectivity for the Society in Motion. His research interests are located in the broad fields of wireless communications, signal processing and channel modeling. He is an associate editor of IEEE Communication Letters, IEEE Access and EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networks.
