主讲：马晓莉教授 IEEE Fellow 美国佐治亚理工学院
Underwater communications have attracted a lot of attentions in recent years to support ocean exploration. Due to the complicated channels, some of the main challenges for underwater communications are in signal processing. In this talk, we will discuss underwater channel modeling, channel estimation, synchronization, and differential designs, and we will show some signal processing techniques for underwater video transmissions. Furthermore, we will use our own underwater software defined radios to demonstrate underwater transmissions. Finally, we will reveal some future research projects.
Xiaoli Ma, IEEE Fellow, received the B.S. degree in Automatic Control from Tsinghua University, China, in 1998, the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Virginia, in 2000, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, in 2003. Since January 2006, she has been with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Tech., where she is currently a full Professor.
Her research interests focus on wireless networking and communications, including transceiver designs for wireless channels, channel estimation and equalization algorithms, carrier frequency synchronization, and cooperative designs for wireless networks.
Dr. Ma actively serves for society such as a Senior Area Editor for the IEEE SIGNAL PROC. LETTERS, Elsevier Digital Signal Processing, the IEEE TRANS. ON WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS, and many IEEE/ACM conferences. Dr. Ma was a co-director for Georgia Tech Center of Excellence (CoE) in UWB Technology (2012-2015). Dr. Ma is also co-founder of Ratrix Technologies, LLC, which focuses on realizing low-complexity wireless receivers.
