About Mike Faulkner

Michael Faulkner received a BSc (Eng) from Queen Mary University of London, UK, and a PhD (1993) from the University of Technology, Sydney, Australia. He is Emeritus Professor in Telecommunications at Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia. He co-founded and led the Centre for Telecommunications and Micro-Electronics (CTME) 2002-2008.

Professor Faulkner has worked in amplifier linearisation, and low energy (green) wireless transmitters. He is now an expert in the use of signal processing to correct for radio frequency circuit imperfections and received a prize for an article on this topic in the IET Proceedings on Communications. Professor Faulkner has been involved in standardisation and commercialisation activities in the IEE802.11 (WLAN) space and is well connected with the wireless industry. He has supervised research projects in radio propagation measurements (wideband channel sounding, direction of arrival etc.), MIMO, transceiver algorithms, architectures and circuits, physical layer signal processing, and modulation. His research interests cover all areas of wireless system design and his current activities are focused on cognitive radio, flexible transceiver design and mm-waves for future wireless systems. He has authored or co-authored over 100 publications.
