Professor Christos Masouros

We are delighted to announce that Professor Christos Masouros from UCL’s Electronic and Electrical Engineering (EEE) department has been elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). This recognition comes in acknowledgment of his outstanding contributions to "interference exploitation and joint sensing and communications."

His pioneering work on Interference Exploitation dating from his PhD studies has created global impact and has led to the research area of Symbol Level Precoding (SLP), followed by numerous groups around the world. His work on joint sensing and communications proposing the concept of integration of the two systems by dual functional waveforms is a world-first in the literature, and produced a number of landmark contributions, earning his recognition as a pioneer in the area.

On achieving this milestone, Prof Masouros expressed:

I am delighted to receive this recognition from the international community. I am indebted to the many excellent collaborators, postdocs, and students I’ve had the privilege to work with in my career. This is a recognition of the quality and impact of the research we do at UCL and with our collaborators world-wide. We remain devoted to our research in future networks, and to developing skills and careers through pioneering research.

The IEEE Fellow distinction is the highest level of membership and is recognised by the technical community as a prestigious honour and an important career accomplishment.
