Giuseppe Caire

Communications engineering

Giuseppe Caire is one of the world’s leading experts on the principles of telecommunications and information theory. His pioneering work on coded modulation and many other publications and applications have had a lasting impact on the practice and standards of modern wireless communications. They are at the bottom of many digital communication technologies such as WLAN and mobile phone transmission. By conducting top-level theoretical research at university whilst working on practical applications at the Heinrich Hertz Institute, Caire would continue to combine productive research with concrete applications and consolidate TU Berlin’s position at the international forefront of the field.

Nominating University: Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) in conjunction with the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, Berlin
