Academic Career and Research Areas

Prof. Utschick’s (b. 1964) research combines signal processing and applied information theory. His work focuses on wireless communications. In particular, he investigates how to overcome interference phenomena using multiantenna technology and resource distribution in communication networks based on mathematical optimization. His other research interests are estimation theory and signal tracking.

Prof. Utschick studied and did his doctorate at TUM after working in the industry. In 2002, he was appointed to the Chair of Signal Processing Methods. He was a visiting professor at the Royal University of Edinburgh and the recently-founded Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT). He is the initiator and current coordinator of the German Research Foundation’s priority program 1397 “Communications in Interference Limited Networks” (COIN).
