Pu (Perry) Wang

  • Biography

    Pu (Perry) Wang was an intern at the Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL), Cambridge, MA, in the summer of 2010. Before returning to MERL, he was a Research Scientist in the Mathematics and Modeling Department of the Schlumberger-Doll Research, Cambridge, MA, contributing to developments of logging-while-drilling Acoustics/NMR products. His current research interests include signal processing, Bayesian inference, statistical learning, and their applications to (mmWave and THz) sensing, wireless communications, networks and automotive applications. He received the IEEE Jack Neubauer Memorial Award from IEEE Vehicular Technology Society in 2013 for the paper "Multiantenna-assisted spectrum sensing for cognitive radioā€¯. He is currently an Associate Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Letters and an Associate Member of IEEE SPS Sensor Array and Multichannel (SAM) Technical Committee.

    • SP1512: Mutual Interference Mitigation

      The Signal Processing (SP) group at MERL is seeking a highly motivated intern to conduct fundamental research in mutual interference mitigation for automotive radar. Previous experience in waveform design, radar detection under interference, joint communication and sensing, interference mitigation, and deep learning for radar is highly preferred. Knowledge about automotive radar schemes (MIMO and waveform modulation, e.g., FMCW, PMCW, and OFDM) is a plus. The intern will collaborate with a small group of MERL researchers to develop novel algorithms, design experiments using MERL in-house testbed, and prepare results for patents and publication. Senior Ph.D. students with research focuses on signal processing, machine learning, optimization, applied mathematics, or related areas are encouraged to apply. The expected duration of the internship is 3 months with a flexible start date.
