Biography: Alex Stéphenne was born in Quebec, Canada, on May 8, 1969. He received the B.Ing. degree in electrical engineering from McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, in 1992, and the M.Sc. degree and Ph.D. degrees in telecommunications from INRS-Télécommunications, Université du Québec, Montreal, in 1994 and 2000, respectively. In 1999 he joined SITA Inc., in Montreal, where he worked on the design of remote management strategies for the computer systems of airline companies. In 2000, he became a DSP Design Specialist for Dataradio Inc., Montreal, a company specializing in the design and manufacturing of advanced wireless data products and systems for mission critical applications. In January 2001, he joined Ericsson and worked for over two years in Sweden, where he was responsible for the design of baseband algorithms for WCDMA commercial base station receivers. From June 2003 to December 2008, he was still working for Ericsson, but was based in Montreal, where he was a researcher focusing on issues related to the physical layer of wireless communication systems. Since 2004, he is also an adjunct professor at INRS, where he has been continuously supervising the research activities of multiple students. His current research interests include Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP) transmission and reception, Inter-Cell Interference Coordination (ICIC) and mitigation techniques in Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets), wireless channel modeling/characterization/estimation, statistical signal processing, array processing and adaptive filtering for wireless telecommunication applications. He joined Huawei Technologies Canada, in Ottawa, in Dec. 2009.

Alex has been a member of the IEEE since 1995 and a Senior member since 2006. He is a member of the "Ordre des Ingénieurs du Québec" (OIQ). He is a member of the organizing committee and a co-chair of the Technical Program Committee (TPC) for the 2012-Fall IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC'12-Fall), in Quebec City. He has served as a co-chair for the "Multiple antenna systems and space-time processing" track for VTC'08-Fall, in Calgary, and as a co-chair of the TPC for VTC'2006-Fall in Montreal. He acts regularly as a reviewer for many international scientific journals and conferences and for the funding organizations NSERC.

Research topics: Wireless Communications, Modeling/Characterization/Estimation of the Wireless Channel, Digital Signal Processing, CDMA and OFDM Radio Interfaces, statistical Signal Processing, Array Processing, Adaptive Filtering, Synchronization, Performance Analysis.
