Biography
Gilwon Lee is currently working with Prof. Robert Heath as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Texas (UT) at Austin. He received the Ph.D. degree in the School of Electrical Engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, South Korea, in 2016, under the supervision of Prof. Youngchul Sung. His research interests are on signal processing for large-scale MIMO, millimeter wave (mmWave) MIMO, and vehicular-to-everything (V2X) communication systems and on applying machine learning to future wireless networks.
