Alexander Haimovich, PhD, is the Ying Wu Endowed Chair in Wireless Telecommunications and a professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology. His research interests focus on advanced radar, sensing, and communication systems including multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar, geolocation, compressed sensing for target localization, and signal design. Over the years, Haimovich's research has been supported by the US Air Force, National Science Foundation, the U.S. Army and industry.
Haimovich recently served as the director of the New Jersey Center for Wireless Telecommunications, a state-funded consortium. Members include NJIT, Princeton University, Rutgers University and Stevens Institute of Technology.
In 2003, Haimovich served as chair of the Communication Theory Symposium at Globecom. He was for many years an associate editor for IEEE Communications Letters and more recently a guest editor for the EURASIP Journal of Applied Signal Processing Special Issue on Turbo Coding.
He received his doctorate in systems from the University of Pennsylvania, his master's degree in electrical engineering from Drexel University and his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the Technion, Haifa, Israel.
