Dr. Alexandra Duel-Hallen

| Biography

Dr. Duel-Hallen current research interests are in Wireless Communications. Her recent and current projects focus on fading channel characterization and prediction, adaptive transmission, and cross-layer design for ad hoc wireless networks. From 1990 to 1996, she was Editor for Communication Theory for the IEEE Transactions on Communications. During 2000-2002, she has served as Guest Editor of two Special Issues on Multiuser Detection for the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications.
