Stefan Wesemann

Stuttgart, Germany
Member of Technical Staff


Dr.-Ing. (PhD) in Electrical Engineering, Dresden University of Technology, 2014

Dipl.-Ing. (Masters) in Information Systems Engineering, Dresden University of Technology, 2006



Stefan Wesemann received the Dipl.-Ing. (Masters) in Information Systems Engineering in 2006, and the Dr.-Ing. (PhD) in Electrical Engineering, both from Dresden University of Technology. Between 2007 and 2010, he worked for Signalion GmbH (now National Instruments) in 4G test equipment development. Stefan joined Bell Labs in 2014.

Stefan serves as a core team member of the FutureCell (FCell) project where he is responsible for the physical layer signal processing. Besides these activities, he became part of the Next Generation Wireless Systems department in 2016 where he works on advanced channel estimation and precoding techniques for Massive MIMO systems.
