Last fall Sudharman Jayaweera was awarded a Sandia University Research Program grant for developing cooperative communications and interference suppression techniques for CDMA networks. He has won two best paper awards at IEEE conferences during the last five years: one at IEEE’s 2006 International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal-Based Surveillance for his work on “Large System Decision Fusion Performance in Inhomogeneous Sensor Networks” and the other at the 2003 IEEE Wireless Personal Multimedia Conference for “Performance Analysis of Decorrelating Decision Feedback Detection for MIMO Systems in Rician Fading”.

Dr. Jayaweera has published more than 60 peer reviewed journal and conference papers and two book chapters. His industry experience includes developing wireless geolocation and tracking algorithms for the proprietary RadioCamera technology of US Wireless Corporation in 1998-99 and several summer internships.

Currently he serves as the associate editor of EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing, and he co-chaired the subcommittee on Software-Defined and Cognitive Radios at the 2008 IEEE Radio and Wireless Symposium. He also serves as the director of ECE’s EYES summer internship program for international students (see page 29). Dr. Jayaweera serves as the major advisor to five graduate students, and he teaches courses in multiuser communications, network information theory, wireless communications, and detection and estimation theory.

Current Research
Dr. Jayaweera’s current research interests include cognitive and cooperative communications, game theory, statistical signal/image processing, distributed detection and estimation in wireless sensor networks, and network information theory.
