Tingjun Chen and Mahmood Baraani Dastjerdi selected as 2017 Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship finalists

image001WiMNet Ph.D. student Tingjun Chen and Mahmood Baraani Dastjerdi (a Ph.D. student of Prof. Harish Krishnaswamy) were selected as finalists for the Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship 2017.

Their project is titled “Full-Duplex MIMO Wireless: From IC Design to Networking” and  builds on recent FlexICoN project results. It focuses on integrating full-duplex with compact IC-based phased arrays and MIMO transceivers with a novel solution to cancel the self-interference and cross-talk-self-interference. Tingjun’s and Mahmood’s propose to  follow a cross-layered approach to holistically study the physical (PHY) and the Medium Access Control (MAC) layers for full-duplex MIMO wireless networks, including small cell and Wi-Fi networks.
