Welcome to the Wireless Science and Engineering Lab

Our research includes understanding, evaluating, and designing various portions of wireless communication systems, primarily at the physical and data link layers of the communications protocol stack.  This includes modeling of the wireless channel itself (in multiple environments), modulation/demodulation, transmitter/receiver signal processing, multiple access, etc.


June 2017

During the first week of June, 2017, Prof. Matolak taught an invited short course at the National Institute of Technology, in Rourkela, Odisha, India. The course had more than 20 students from across the east-Indian region.

May 2017

Prof. Matolak participated as an invited panelist on the panel Propagation Challenges in New 5G Use Cases at the IEEE International Conference on Communication (ICC) in Paris, France, 24 May. Prof. Matolak also presented the paper “Spatial and Frequency Correlations in Two-Ray SIMO Channels” at ICC, co-authors H. Jamal, R. Sun.
