El-Gamal, recipient of 2004 NSF CAREER Award

ISR alum Hesham El-Gamal, now on the faculty of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Ohio State, is the recipient of a 2004 National Science Foundation CAREER Award for "MIMO Fading in Links, Cells, and Networks: Coding and Information Theoretic Challenges."

His research will focus on antenna diversity techniques, which have received considerable attention due to the significant theoretic information gains promised for multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) fading channels. Hesham hopes to develop a unified algebraic coding theory for point-to-point MIMO fading channels. This will bridge different branches in algebra and space-time coding.He will also develop joint coding and scheduling algorithms for cellular MIMO channels, and cooperative (i.e. antenna sharing) schemes for ad-hoc MIMO channels. The cross fertilization between these two areas is expected to introduce useful algebraic tools in space-time coding research and formulate new problems of possible interest to the mathematical research community. The NSF CAREER program fosters the career development of outstanding junior faculty, combining the support of research and education of the highest quality and in the broadest sense.
