Joerg Widmer

Research Professor (tenured) & Research Director
at IMDEA Networks

Research interests

My research interests are primarily in the area of wireless networking and communication, with research topics ranging from millimeter-wave communication, MAC layer design, and interference management to wireless transport protocols and anticipatory networks. I am particularly interested in putting theoretical results into practice and extensively work with wireless testbeds and software defined radios.
