Osamah Rashed Alamri received his BS degree with first class honours in electrical engineering from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM), Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, in 1997, where he was ranked first with a 4.0 GPA. In 2002, he received his MS degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University, California, USA. He submitted his PhD thesis in October 2006 and published in excess of 20 research papers while working towards his PhD degree with the Communications Group, School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, UK. His research interests include sphere packing modulation, space-time coding, turbo coding and detection, multi-dimensional mapping and MIMO systems. At the time of writing he is continuing his investigations as a post-doctoral researcher.
Mohammed El-Hajjar received his BEng degree (with distinction) in electrical engineering from the American University of Beirut (AUB), Lebanon, and his MSc degree (with distinction) in radio frequency communication systems from the University of Southampton, UK. Since October 2005, he has been working towards his PhD degree with the Communications Group, School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, UK. He is the recipient of several academic awards from the AUB as well as the University of Southampton. His research interests include sphere packing modulation, space-time coding, differential space-time spreading, adaptive transceiver design and cooperative communications. In 2008 he completed his PhD thesis and joined Ensigma in Chepstow, Wales, UK, as a wireless system architect.
Nan Wu received his BEng in electronics engineering in 2003 from Dalian University of Technology, China. He then moved to the UK and received his MSc degree (with distinction) and PhD from the University of Southampton,UK in 2004 and 2008, respectively.His research interests are in the area of wireless communications, including space-time coding, channel coding and cooperative MIMO systems. In September 2008 he joined the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the USA as a guest researcher working on cross-layer designs.
