Catherine Rosenberg is Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo (CA) where she holds the Canada Research Chair in the Future Internet (since 2010) and the Cisco Research Chair in 5G Systems (since 2018).
She will stay @LINCS on first semester 2023/2024 and will conduct research with our team on how FWA can be used to providing internet acces in rural areas.
She started her career at ALCATEL, France and later at AT&T Bell Labs. in the USA. Between 1988 and 1996, she was a faculty member at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal, Canada.
In 1996, she joined Nortel Networks in the UK where she established and led the R&D Department in Broadband Satellite Networking.
In August 1999, Dr. Rosenberg assumed the role of Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University. There, in may 2002, she co-founded the Center for Wireless Systems and Applications (CWSA).
On Sept 1st, 2004, she joined University of Waterloo as the Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering for a three-year term.

João Paulo Marques is an Electrical and Computer Engineering Ph.D. Student at the University of Waterloo. His research focuses on wireless communications and is supervised by Professor Catherine Rosenberg. Specifically, he is interested in MU-MIMO, resource allocation, optimization and machine learning. He is also very passionate about getting to know different cultures and languages.
Romain CERVERA is an M1 student currently in a gap year and studying at CentraleSupélec. His internship will be about modeling large networks using tools from stochastic geometry and graph theory. It is supervised by François Baccelli and takes place at Inria Paris. He is keen on pure and applied mathematics (in fields such as communications or physics), and is eager to discover the world of research.
Cristina VENITUCCI has degrees in media studies and document retrieval, along with several years of experience as an administrative and communication assistant in the field of academic research. She joined us in September to welcome and assist LINCS members with their administrative and logistical needs.
