Dr. Bruno Clerckx

Bruno Clerckx is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department at Imperial College London (London, United Kingdom). He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degree in applied science from the Université catholique de Louvain (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium) in 2000 and 2005, respectively. He spent the 1998-1999 academic year at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Leuven, Belgium) and held visiting research positions at Stanford University (CA, USA) in 2003 and Eurecom Institute (Sophia-Antipolis, France) in 2004. In 2006, he was a Post-Doc at the Université catholique de Louvain. Before joining Imperial College, he was a Senior Engineer and Project Leader at Samsung Electronics (Suwon, South Korea) from 2006 to 2011.
He is the author or coauthor of one book on “MIMO wireless communications: From Real-World Propagation to Space-Time Code Design” (Academic Press, Elsevier, 2007), about 60 peer-reviewed international research papers, more than 150 standard contributions and numerous issued or pending patents. He was actively contributing to 3GPP LTE/LTE-Advanced RAN1 (Releases 8 to 11) and IEEE 802.16m from 2007 to 2011 as a leading delegate for Samsung on Downlink MIMO, Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) transmission/reception and Heterogeneous Networks (HetNet) issues. He occupied leadership positions in standard groups as the rapporteur for the LTE-Advanced Study Item on Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP) and the editor of the technical report 3GPP TR36.819. He received the Best Student Paper Award at the IEEE SCVT 2002 and numerous Awards from Samsung in recognition of special achievements. Dr. Clerckx is an editor for IEEE Transactions on Communications.
His research interests are in the fields of communication theory, signal processing and radio propagation for wireless and satellite communication systems, networks and standards, with a special emphasis on multi-antenna and multi-point signal processing, channel modeling and measurement, MIMO systems, coordinated multipoint (CoMP) transmission and interference mitigation, OFDMA networks, space-time coding, cooperative communications, heterogeneous networks, green (energy-efficient) communications, cross-layer and system-level designs.
