Biography

Steven R. Weller was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1965. He received the B.E. (Hons I) degree in computer engineering in 1988, the M.E. degree in electrical engineering in 1992, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering in 1994, all from the University of Newcastle, Australia. From April 1994 to July 1997 he was a lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, at the University of Melbourne, Australia, and was a member of the Centre for Sensor Signal and Information Processing (CSSIP). Since July 1997 he has been at the University of Newcastle, Australia, where he is currently a Senior Lecturer in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. His research interests include low-density parity-check codes, iterative decoding algorithms, space-time coded communications, and combinatorics.
