Overview

Dr. Konstanty Bialkowski’s research interests lie in the area of communication systems, passive radar and signal processing, and specifically in the areas of wireless communication, and the use of multiple antennas or sensors for communication, radar and imaging systems. Some interesting aspects include the baseband processing and channel estimation using software defined radios, FPGAs and DSPs and the applications to high reliability or high data rate communications, radio-frequency identification, wireless sensing and biological applications.
