Graeme K. Woodward (S'94-M'99) was awarded B.Sc and BE and Ph.D. degrees from The University of Sydney in 1990, 1992 and 1999 respectively. From 1991 to 1994 he worked at Alcatel Australia in digital switching systems. During PhD studies he was a visiting researcher at Yokohama National University, Japan, during 1996 and at Northwestern University, USA, during 1998. During 1999-2000 he worked with Southern-Poro Communications, Sydney, in channel modeling, 3G cellular systems and multiuser detection for CDMA, in collaboration with The University of Oulu, Finland.

In 2001 he joined Bell Laboratories Research, Lucent Technologies, Sydney, Australia, researching 3G systems, multi-antenna systems, multiuser detection, interference suppression and adaptive digital filter algorithms for equalisation.

In 2003 he joined Agere Systems Australia, a centre of excellence in research and development of application specific integrated circuits targetted at wireless networks for 3rd generation and beyond.
