About Dr Zihuai Lin

Dr Lin’s research interests are mainly on next generation wireless communication systems (e.g., LTE/LTE-A MIMO, 5G), M2M, heterogeneous networks, wireless sensor networks and communication theory.

Particular focus on capacity approaching code design, such as distributed network channel coding, joint source channel network coding, rateless codes, as well as LTE/LTE-A OFDMA/SC-FDMA MIMO, precoding, optimal resource allocation, massive MIMO, interference cancellation and user association for heterogeneous networks, smart grid, and iterative receiver design.

Dr Lin’s main contributions have been widely recognized and published on top quality IEEE journals, such as IEEE Transactions on Information Theory and IEEE Transactions on Communications.
