Professor Mounir Ghogho


Mounir Ghogho has received the M.S. degree in 1993 and the PhD degree in 1997 from the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse, France. He was an EPSRC Research Fellow with the University of Strathclyde (Scotland), from Sept 1997 to Nov 2001. Since Dec 2001, he has been a faculty member with the school of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Leeds (England), where he is currently a Professor. He was awarded the UK Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship in September 2000. He is a recipient of the 2013 IBM Faculty Award. He is currently an associate editor of the Signal Processing Magazine. He served as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Signal Processing Letters from 2001 to 2004, the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing from 2005 to 2008, and the Elsevier Digital Signal Processing journal from 2011 to 1012. He served as a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society SPCOM Technical Committee from 2005 to 2010, a member of IEEE Signal Processing Society SPTM Technical Committee from 2006 to 2011, and is currently a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society SAM Technical Committee. He was the General Chair of the European SIgnal Processing conference Eusipco2013 and the IEEE workshop on Signal Processing for Advanced Wireless Communications SPAWC’2010, the technical co-chair of the MIMO symposium of IWCMC 2007 and IWCMC 2008, and a technical area co-chair of Eusipco 2008, Eusipco 2009 and ISCCSP’05. He has published over 260 journal and conference papers in the areas of signal processing and wireless communication. He held invited scientist/professor positions at Telecom Paris-Tech (France), NII (Japan), BUPT (China), University Carlos 3rd of Madrid (Spain), ENSICA (Toulouse), Darmstadt Technical University (Germany), and Minnesota University (USA).
