My primary research interests are in various aspects of multiple antenna systems, particularly the interplay between traditionally separate disciplines of antennas, propagation channels and signal processing. In recent years, I have been very active in developing innovative approaches on designing and evaluating multi-antenna systems, including the use of Theory of Characteristic Modes to achieve efficient MIMO antennas. I am also active in several other topics including vehicular antenna simulation and design.
