I am a PhD candidate student studying in the Software Defined Radio (SDR) Research Lab of the Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Strathclyde.
My current work is focusing on the development of HDL compatible Filter Bank Multicarrier (FBMC) based SDR radio transceivers for opportunistic secondary user Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) applications. Working at PHY level, the aim is that these radios will be able to identify empty spectral bands, cognitively decide which are most suitable for use, and then use dynamic non-contiguous modulation in order to establish communications channels in them. I am developing these transceivers from within MATLAB and Simulink, which means they can ultimately be deployed with the tools to ZynqSDR devices (Xilinx Zynq based FPGA/ARM SoC dev board + Analog Devices SDR front end) or used in conjunction with USRP radios.
I am also one of the authors of the well known 670 page 12 chapter textbook: Software Defined Radio using MATLAB & Simulink and the RTL-SDR. More information…
