Desirable skills/interests: Signal processing, array processing, wireless communications, wireless networking, optimization, hands-on experience with hardware and systems (the applicant shouldbe proficient in at least one or two of the skills)

Objectives:

To design custom measurement beam patterns for phased antenna arrays to quickly acquire Channel State Information (CSI);

To investigate tradeoffs between link SNR maximization and interference minimization in order to balance fairness and efficiency throughout the network;

To investigate algorithms that acquire the full CSI when only partial information is available via efficient procedures, either involving prior measurements or by factoring in external information.
