Biography

Daniel P. Palomar (S'99-M’03) received the Electrical Engineering and Ph.D. degrees (both with honors) from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 1998 and 2003, respectively.

He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong. He has held several research appointments, namely, at King's College London (KCL), London, UK, during 1998; Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, from January 1999 to December 2003; Stanford University, Stanford, CA, from April to November 2001; Telecommunications Technological Center of Catalonia (CTTC), Barcelona, from January to December 2002; Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, from August to November 2003; University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Rome, Italy, from November 2003 to February 2004; Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, from March 2004 to July 2006.

His primary research interests include information-theoretic and signal processing aspects of MIMO channels, with special emphasis on convex optimization theory and majorization theory applied to communication systems. He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Trans. on Signal Processing, a guest editor of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications 2008 special issue on “Game Theory in Communication Systems”, and the lead guest editor of the IEEE JSAC 2007 special issue on “Optimization of MIMO Transceivers for Realistic Communication Networks.”

Dr. Palomar received a 2004/06 Fulbright Research Fellowship; the 2004 Young Author Best Paper Award by the IEEE Signal Processing Society; (co-recipient of) the 2006 Best Student Paper Award at ICASSP’06; the 2002/03 best Ph.D. prize in Information Technologies and Communications by the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC); the 2002/03 Rosina Ribalta first prize for the Best Doctoral Thesis in Information Technologies and Communications by the Epson Foundation; and the 2004 prize for the best Doctoral Thesis in Advanced Mobile Communications by the Vodafone Foundation and COIT.
