digital communication systems."
"For contributions to the analysis and modeling of wireless data and digital communication systems."
Professor Beaulieu is a professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is the Editor for Wireless Communication Theory of the IEEE Transactions on Communications, Associate Editor for Wireless Communication Theory of the IEEE Communications Letters, and holds the iCORE Research Chair in Broadband Wireless Communications.
The group's research has been funded by iCORE, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Communications and Information Technology Ontario (CITO), the Telecommunications Research Institute of Ontario (TRIO), the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Tourism (MEDTT), and the Ontario/Singapore International Research Initiative.
Dr. Beaulieu, faculty colleagues, and students are actively pursuing research in a number of areas. These include topics in digital wireless communications and communications theory. Some areas of research are CDMA spread spectrum, frequency-hopped spread spectrum, multitone QAM, interference systems, channel modeling and simulation techniques. Work is also being done on diversity, decision feedback equalization, modulation classification and digital synchronization.
