About me

Hi there,

My name is Peter Larsson and I have. een with communication theory at KTH since 2010 when I started my PhD studies. My area for the PhD is on the performance analysis of retransmission-schemes (ARQ/HARQ).

CV in short:

  • 2018: PhD thesis "On performance analysis of retransmission schemes with fading channels" defended, and PhD finilized.
  • 2010-........: Excellence-PhD Student position, KTH, Communication theory
  • 1995-2010: Senior Specialist, Ericsson Research
  • 2009.........: Guest scholar at Harvard 2009
  • 1995.........: M.Sc. in Engineering Physics, KTH
  • 1997-2009: about 235 patents awarded, with about 100 patent families.
  • 2004.........: Awarded Ericsson Inventor of the year 2004
    Motivation: “Peter has been the key inventor within Ericsson Research when securing technology leadership in 4G and "3G evolution" radio access....
  • Listed as the (per share) most productive Swedish inventor 2004-07,
    (Swedish Entrepreneurship forum, Lund univ., Tab. 2, p. 16)
  • Ericsson standardization responsible for IEEE 802.11
  • International experience from work/studies in six countries.
    Singapore 2y, Germany 1y, Australia 1/2y, US 1/2y, England 1/4y, and Sweden.
  • Extensive practical (and theoretical) experience since age of 13 in radio/wireless comm./electronic design
