Professor

Propagation

Claude Oestges received the Electrical Engineering degree and the PhD degree in Applied Science from the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium), in 1996 and 2000, respectively. From 1996 to 2000, he was an Assistant Lecturer in the Microwave Laboratory UCL, with lectures in electromagnetics, wireless communications and microwave engineering. His doctoral research dealt with propagation models and performance prediction methods for LEO satellite networks. In 1997, he spent two months at the Centre for Communication Systems Research, University of Surrey (UK). He was also involved in the European COST 255 Action « Radiowave propagation modeling for new SatCom services at Ku-band and above ». From January to December 2001, Claude Oestges joined, as a post-doctoral scholar, the Smart Antennas Research Group (Information Systems Laboratory) of Stanford University (California, USA). He was involved in the development of MIMO multipolarized channel models for broadband wireless access in the field of G2 MMDS technology (with Sprint, Inc.). From October 2001 to September 2005, Claude Oestges was a post-doctoral fellow of the Belgian National Science Foundation (Fonds de la RechercheScientifique, FRS-FNRS), associated with the Microwave Laboratory UCL. Meanwhile, he carried out several short-term missions at Stanford University, and took part in COST 273 « Towards mobile broadband multimedia networks », in NEWCOM Network of Excellence and in the IEEE 802.11 Standardization Working Group on « Multiple antenna channel modeling ». From October 2005 to October 2014, he was Associate Professor at UCL and FRS-FNRS Senior Research Associate.
