Professor Jafarkhani Elected IEEE Fellow

Authors a new book on space-time coding

November 15, 2006 - The Henry Samueli School of Engineering is pleased to congratulate Associate Professor Hamid Jafarkhani, in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, for being elected an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Fellow in honor of his “contributions to space-time coding.”

Since 1963, IEEE has acknowledged those individuals who have contributed to the advancement of engineering science and technology. The grade of Fellow is bestowed on the recipient who has had an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. Jafarkhani’s appointment to Fellow will become effective on January 1, 2006.

Further, Jafarkhani is the author of a new book titled, “Space-Time Coding, Theory and Practice,” which covers the fundamental principles of space-time coding for wireless communications over multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) channels, and illustrates practical coding methods for achieving the performance improvements predicted by the theory.
