Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Utschick





Prof. Utschick’s (b. 1964) research combines different areas of applied mathematics in various signal processing application domains as in the field of wireless communications and automotive safety. Most recently he also started research projects in the area of power transmission grids. He holds several patents in the field of multi-antenna signal processing and has authored and co-authored a great many of technical articles in international journals and conference proceedings. Prof. Utschick studied and did his doctorate at TUM after working in the industry. In 2002, he was appointed to the Chair of Signal Processing Methods. He edited several books and is founder and editor of the Springer book series “Foundations in Signal Processing, Communications and Networking”. Dr. Utschick has been Principal Investigator in multiple research projects funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). He is a member of the VDE and senior member of the IEEE, where he currently serves as the Chair of the German Signal Processing Society. Since 2011 he is member of the steering committee of the TUM Department for Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and since 2017 he is directing the ECE Department as the Dean and serves in the extended board of management of TUM.
