MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology has brought profound changes to the wireless communication landscape. From the initialdesign goals of maximizing the diversity or multiplexing gain, MIMOresearch focus has moved on to non-vanishing determinant codes,fast-decodable codes, multi-user MIMO broadcast, MIMO relaying forcooperative diversity, and multi-cell MIMO for interference management, etc. In this talk, I will present some of the MIMOresearch works conducted by us in recent years. They include: 1. Fast-group-decodable high-rate STBC (space time block code) that has both quasi-orthogonal and "fast decodable" code structures2. Shift-orthogonal STBC that achieves full cooperative diversity in asynchronous channels with symbol-wise linear decoding3. 2-step bi-directional MIMO relaying with analog/binary network coding4. Formulating distributed multi-cell interference management as a"potential game".

In 1991-1993, he worked in the cellular and wireless industry in Singapore. He is now an Associate Professor with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and the Director of the Positioning and Wireless Technology Center (PWTC), at the Nanyang Technological University of Singapore. He has also been appointed an Adjunct Professor of the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, China, and a Faculty Associate of the Institute of Infocomm Research, Agency of Science, Technology and Research, Singapore. His research interests broadly include modulation, coding and signal processing for communication systems and information security systems. He has led 10 past and present extramural research projects with total funding of over SGD 4 million. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Signal Processing Letter, and has served in international conferences including ICC, VTC, and ICUWB. He has been granted 1 patent and has filed another 4. He has published an invited monograph, over 200 journal and conference papers, and 3 book chapters. His h-index in Scopus is 11.
