Wireless Communication Lab
Welcome Message from the Lab Director:
Wireless Communication Lab has committed to the research, development and commercialization activities in the field of
wireless communication engineering both nationally and internationally. With the full support from California State
University, government agencies, research collaborators and industrial partners, Wireless Communication Lab will be headed for greater ambitions in the future.
Our ultimate aim is to become a world-class centre of excellent in wireless communication engineering and one of the very best research hub for wireless technology and Internet-of-Things (IoT) in the nation. We planned our strategies towards becoming a dynamic key player in research and development as well as offering outstanding research experience to our visiting researchers and providing experties industry partners.
California State University Bakersfield opens its door to both national and international research collaborators to join us in various interesting and innovative R&D programs. We would also like to share our expertise and experience with you through short courses and consultancy services. I am confident that our Wireless Communication Lab experts are capable of providing strong support in line with your aspirations. I look forward to welcoming you to our university as a research collaborator, industry partner, postdoc or visiting scholar.
Sincerely, Dr. Reza Abdolee, Assistant Professor and Lab. Director, Wireless Communication Lab, California State University
Dr. Reza Abdolee is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer & Electrical and Computer Science, California State Uninversity, Bakersfield (CSUB). He received his Ph.D. in Computer and Electrical Engineering in 2014 from McGill University, Montreal, Cananda.
Prior to joining to CSUB, Dr. Abdolee has worked as a Senior System Engineer at Qualcomm Inc. for two years. In this position, he has worked with many talented and creative individuals in Qualcomm in design and modeling of digital subsystems and system-on-chips (SOC) parts, which is used in many wireless/mobile communication devices. In 2012, he was at Bell Lab, Alcatel Lucent Company (now acquired by Nokia Inc.) in Stuttgart, Germany. The focus of his work at Alcatel-Lucent was on IoT and the development of advanced signal processing algorithms for the new generation of wireless communication systems and LTE/4G standard. In 2011, Dr. Abdolee has served as a research scholar at Adaptive System Laboratory (ASL) in University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). His contribution in this Lab. leaded to several new algorithms and provided tools for performance analysis of distributed optimization strategies for behavior prediction of sensor networks and IoT systems. His close collaboration with Prof. Ali H. Sayed at ASL ended in numerous peer-reviewed articles published at IEEE Transactions Journals and conferences.
During the past few years, Dr. Abdolee research resulted in several patents and inventions in the area of wireless communications and Internet of Things. He invented a wireless communication system architecture that can significantly enhance the link reliability, data rate and capacity of today's communication systems. He patented a new dynamic reconfigurable hardware to enhance the security of IoT and current wireless devices. His wireless biometric sensor invention in the area of IoTree (agriculture) will help growers/farmers to combat the adverse impact of global warming on crop's yields. Dr. Abdolee strives to help the local community and industries to speed up their advancement in today’s fast changing technology and align themself with the accelerating pace of bussinesse. His excellent work and outstanding academic achievements were recognized around the globe, particularly, in the US, Canada, Germany and Malaysia. He has been the winner of several prestigious scholarships and awards, including, NSERC postgraduate award, FQRNT Doctoral Research Scholarship, DAAD-RISE Professional Scholarship, ReSMiQ Supplementary Scholarship and SYTACom Industrial Collaboration Award.
