Key people involved

Alain Sibille
He is Professor and Vice-Chair for Research of the Comelec Department. His scientific interests lie in the statistical modeling of wireless communications and systems, especially regarding the connections between antennas, channels, and signal processing

Xavier Begaud
He is Professor and Head of the Microwave & RF group of Comelec. His research includes design of wideband, dual polarized and 3D antennas, especially based on metamaterials, and mutual coupling analysis in the framework of UWB and software radio.

Philippe Ciblat
He is Professor and Head of the Digital Communications group of Comelec. His research includes signal processing (equalization, estimation, synchronization, localization), and resource allocation (multiple access, cooperative communications, HARQ).

Antoine Khy
He is a Research Engineer in Comelec, focusing on GaAs / CMOS circuits design for wireless mm-wave communications and 4G handsets, especially mixers and demodulators. He is also involved in 40 - 60 GHz source/load-pull measurements for power amplifier characterization.

Luca Leggio
He is a first year PhD Student at Comelec, with a thesis subject towards the characterization of the impact of the human body on the performance of wireless devices in downlink and uplink channels.

Christophe Roblin
He is Associate Professor at Comelec. His research mostly deals with UWB communications, with a focus on the design, characterization, parametric and statistical modelling of antennas as well as on radio channel topics for BANs and RFIDs.
