Reader in Wireless Connectivity
His research interests span the areas of signal processing, information and communication theory, with the emphasis on wireless communications. He is also engaged in the development advanced distributed algorithms for Analogue VLSI.
Dr Piechocki's research has a direct impact on the development of current and future wireless systems. He has contributed to the development of Blast-OFDM (a.k.a. MIMO-OFDM) radio interface. This technique is one of the most efficient radio interfaces and is a core technology for many future standards e.g it has been selected for the next generation WiFi system (IEEE 802.11n). In collaboration with Toshiba and IHP, he has led the development of novel power efficient analogue VLSI transceivers. He has participated in a number of industrial (e.g. Toshiba, IHP, QinetiQ, Fujitsu), UK and EU funded projects.
