Tobias Oechtering, Assistant Professor
Biography: Tobias Oechtering received his Dipl.-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology in 2002 from RWTH Aachen University, Germany, and his Dr.-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering in 2007 from the Technische Universitaet Berlin, Germany under the supervision of Prof. Holger Boche. In 2012 he became Docent in Communication Theory at KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
Between 2002 and 2007 he worked as research and teaching assistant at the Heinrich-Hertz-Chair for Mobile Communications of the Technische Universitaet Berlin, Germany. Between 2007 and 2008 he worked as research assistant at the Fraunhofer German-Sino Lab for Mobile Communications, Berlin, Germany. In November 2008 he joined the Communication Theory Lab at KTH as a Post-Doctoral Researcher, was an Assistant Professor between July 2010 and April 2013 and has been an Associate Professor since May 2013.
In 2002 he received the "Herbert-Doering Award" for his Diploma Thesis and the Best Paper Award on the 6th Int. Student Conf. of Electrical Engineering of the CTU Prague. He received the Best Student Paper Award and Best Paper Award on the 8th IEEE Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications in 2007 and ICST ChinaCom in 2010 and the "Foerderpreis" (Advancement Award) from the Vodafone Foundation in June 2009.
Presently, he is serving as an editor for IEEE Communications Letters since 2012. From 2010 to 2012 he served as an Associate Editor for Physical Communications Journal by ELSEVIER. He has also served as member on several technical program committees and acts regularily as reviewer for journals and conference papers.
Research interests: Coding theory and signal processing for cooperative communication, in particular for "bidirectional relay communication"; energy efficient communication, in particular in the scope of the EU COST action IC1004; communication and control, decoder design, and distributed detection.
Supervision: He serves as an associate supervisor for the following PhD students
