The Centre for Telecommunications and Information Engineering (CTIE)


CTIE has been formally closed as a centre, but the staff are still active - please see ECSE Research web pages for more up to date information.

CTIE Staff

Please contact staff directly for research related queries

Dr Nemai Karmakar has an interest in advanced antenna design and the next generation of RFID type of devices.
Mr Brian Lithgow's main area of interest is Biomedical signal processing, but has a strong interest in digital signal processing in general.
Dr Malin Premaratne has interests in Optical Communications Systems, Operations Research, Software Engineering, Digital Signal Processing, Distributed Computing, Mathematical Modeling and Bio-Photonics
Ahmet Dr. Ahmet Sekercioglu enjoys simulation. He has spent many happy hours developing advanced IPv6 simulations in the OMNET++ simulator. He has research interests in Simulation of very-large scale communication networks. Computational intelligence (Fuzzy Logic and Evolutionary Computation) applications to communication network control. And has a long publications list.
Dr Jingxin Zhang is strongly focussed on signal processing (eg: of MRI) and control techniques.

Honorary Research Associates and Former Members of Staff

Dr Hamid Abachi was the departments Director of International Programs, Director of Postgraduate (Coursework) Programs [and was especially fond of the Masters of Telecommunications Engineering ], Director of Professional Development Programs [including Masters by coursework and single subject enrollments as well as short courses] as well as First Year Electrical Engineering Co-ordinator . He still managed to find a little time for research.
Dr L.N. Binh specialises in very high bit rate Optical Communications and has built up a research lab which includes donations from Telstra and Siemens, including a 10x 16 Gb/s optically amplified long-haul transmission system in the Optical Communications and Applied Photonics Lab, which was donated by Siemens. He has been researching 40Gb/s and beyond WDM systems as well as simulating optical components and quantum communications.
Dr.Binh has previously been the Director of CTIE.
Dr. Binh's publications list can be seen here
A/Prof William A Brown
Prof John Bird
Dr John A. Bennett specialises in ionospheric radio propagation, radar and TIGER projects
Mr. Terry Cornall   has an  information page that links to many prior projects.
Dr. Gregory Cambrell
Dr. Greg Daley
Professor G.K. Egan was the Director of CTIE prior to 2006.  His research interests included the design, programming and application of high-performance parallel and distributed computer architectures; special purpose and alternative computer architectures.   He also enjoys research into all aspects of autonomous aircraft.
Daniel Grimm Mr Daniel Grimm conducted research into the effects of IPv6 and other networks on internet video streaming.  Recently this work was funded under the Australian Telecommunications CRC, but that project has come to a close. Dan had worked on the eMerge project investigating video conferencing and internet video streaming.
Dr Tsun Yue Ho had research interests in Signal processing, statistical inference (including financial engineering), wireless communications, channel modeling, MIMO systems, and channel theory.
Mr Stewart Jenvey has research interests in  indoor radio propagation, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and avionics as well as advanced antenna design and measurement. An anechoic chamber facility for antenna measurements, an EMC chamber for EMC research and testing are part of the facilities in the department.
Mr Ian Kaminskyj.  General research interests include: machine learning, pattern recognition, signal processing, feature extraction and teaching quality in tertiary education. Specific current research includes: 1. Automatic classification of audio frequency waveforms
Dr. Donald Keogh
Dr. Nallasamy Mani  has research interests in routing algorithms for broadband networks, mobile computing, channel assignment and load balancing in mobile networks and multistage interconnection networks
Mr. Nick Moore
Dr. Russell Naughton has devoted many hours to creating the superb website: Hargrave : 150 Years of Australian Aviation History
Dr Khok Khee Pang was instrumental in the creation of CTIE, and originally spent his time on compression and coding techniques related to video. More recently he had been working on space time channel encoding. An  information page that highlights some of Dr. Pang's prior work.
Khee passed away peacefully March 2009
 Brett Pentland
Dr. Thirukkumaran Sivahumaran received his PhD in 2006. The title of his thesis was "Multiuser Receivers for Coded Transmit Diversity DS-CDMA Systems". He worked with Dr. Pang and Dr. Binh on space time encoding systems (2007)
