Biography

Iain B. Collings was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1970. He received the B.E. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Melbourne in 1992, and the Ph.D. degree in Systems Engineering from the Australian National University in 1995.

Currently he is a Science Leader in the Wireless Technologies Laboratory at the CSIRO ICT Centre, Australia. Prior to this he was an Associate Professor at the University of Sydney (1999-2005); a Lecturer at the University of Melbourne (1996-1999); and a Research Fellow in the Australian Cooperative Research Centre for Sensor Signal and Information Processing (1995). His current research interests include mobile digital communications and broadband digital subscriber line communications. More specifically, channel estimation, equalization, and multi-carrier modulation, for time-varying, multi-user, and MIMO channels.

Dr Collings currently serves as an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, and as a Guest Editor for the EURASIP Journal on Advanced Signal Processing. He has also served as the Vice Chair of the Technical Program Committee for IEEE Vehicular Technology Conf. (Spring) 2006, as well as serving on a number of other TPCs and organizing committees of IEEE conferences. He is also a founding organizer of the Australian Communication Theory Workshops 2000-06. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
