PhD: 2008-2011, University College Dublin (UCD)
M.E: 2006-2008, Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT)
B.E: 2002-2006, Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT)
Lei Guan received the B.E. degree and the M.E. degree, both in Electronic Engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), Harbin, China in 2006 and 2008, respectively. He was awarded the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering in 2012 by University College Dublin (UCD), Dublin, Ireland. He served as senior research engineer in UCD School of Electrical, Electronic and Communications Engineering for 1 year before his research fellowship in CTVR at the telecommunications research center (Now CONNECT Centre), Trinity College Dublin (TCD), Ireland.
Currently he is a member of technical staff at Bell Labs, Ireland. During his Ph.D, his research interests include digital predistortion (DPD) based linearization and system-level modeling of RF/Microwave power amplifiers (PA); peak to average power ratio (PAPR) reduction for OFDM signals; and the FPGA implementation of DPD and PAPR Reduction algorithms.
His research interests are mainly in nonlinear system identification algorithms, FPGA-based high performance digital signal processing for wireless communications, high efficient digitally-assisted wireless transceivers, compact and energy efficient massive MIMO processing and flexible architecture with generalized beamforming. He also has interests in FPGA-based network protocol implementation and acceleration, and all-programmable devices based statistical modeling for artificial intelligent (AI) and machine visions.
