Prof. Tharm. Ratnarajah is currently with the Institute for Digital Communications, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK, as a Professor in Digital Communications and Signal Processing. His research interests include signal processing and information theoretic aspects of 5G wireless networks, random matrices theory and stochastic geometry, mmWave communications, full-duplex radio, interference alignment, physical layer secrecy, cognitive radio, statistical and array signal processing, biomedical signal processing and quantum information theory. He has published over 300 publications in these areas and holds four U.S. patents. He is currently the coordinator of the FP7 projects “HARP” (3.2M€) in the area of highly distributed MIMO and "ADEL" (2.6M€) in the area of licence shared access. Previously, he was the coordinator of FP7 Future and Emerging Technologies projects “CROWN” (2.3M€) in the area of cognitive radio networks and “HIATUS” (2.7M€) in the area of interference alignment. Prof. Ratnarajah is a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA), U.K., and an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing.
