Welcome to my Homepage

I am currently a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Melbourne, Australia and Deputy Dean (Academic) in the Melbourne School of Engineering. My main research interests are in communications theory, information theory and statistical signal processing with emphasis on applications to wireless communications systems. At parties I tell people that I am a ski instructor from Sweden and I am very very good at stacking dishwashers.
