Sundeep Rangan

Dr. Rangan received the B.A.Sc. at the University of Waterloo, Canada and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, all in Electrical Engineering.  He has held postdoctoral appointments at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and Bell Labs.  In 2000, he co-founded (with four others) Flarion Technologies, a spin off of Bell Labs, that developed Flash OFDM, the first cellular OFDM data system and pre-cursor to 4G cellular systems including LTE and WiMAX. In 2006, Flarion was acquired by Qualcomm Technologies.  Dr. Rangan was a Director of Engineering at Qualcomm involved in OFDM infrastructure products.  He joined the ECE department at NYU Tandon (formerly NYU Polytechnic) in 2010.  He is a Fellow of the IEEE and the Director of NYU WIRELESS, an industry-academic research center on next-generation wireless systems.  His research interests are in wireless communications, signal processing, information theory and control theory.
