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. He was a Head of the Institute for Digital Communications during 2016-2018. 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 /licensed shared access, statistical and array signal processing, biomedical signal processing and quantum information theory. He has published over 350 publications in these areas and holds four U.S. patents. He was the coordinator of the FP7 projects ADEL (3.7M€) in the area of licensed shared access for 5G wireless networks and HARP (4.6M€) in the area of highly distributed MIMO and FP7 Future and Emerging Technologies projects HIATUS (3.6M€) in the area of interference alignment and CROWN (3.4M€) in the area of cognitive radio networks. Dr Ratnarajah was an associate editor IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, 2015-2017 and Technical co-chairs, The 17th IEEE International workshop on Signal Processing advances in Wireless Communications, Edinburgh, UK, 3-6, July, 2016. Dr Ratnarajah is a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA), U.K.
