I am a Professor in Communication Engineering at Aalborg University, the Department of Electronic Systems, heading the section on Connectivity, which covers the broad area of communication theory, with emphasis on wireless communications and networks. Also holding a position of a Visiting Excellence Chair at the University of Bremen in Germany.

Selected honors and awards include Fellow of the IEEE, Villum Investigator (2021- ), holder of a Consolidator Grant (2015-2020) from the European Research Council (ERC), the Danish Telecommunication Prize (2020), and a recipient of the Danish Elite Researcher Award (2016). I am currently the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE JSAC (Journal on Selected Areas in Communications) and the Chair of the IEEE Communication Theory Technical Committee.

My general research interest is in the area of connectivity and communication theory. Examples of more specific research activities include wireless system design (6G and beyond-5G), connected intelligence, ultra-reliable wireless communication, Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, integration of communication with machine learning, satellite communications and Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN), and quantum communication.
