Professor, Chalmers University

Tommy Svensson is Full Professor in Communication Systems at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, leading the Wireless Systems research on air interface and wireless backhaul networking technologies. He received a Ph.D. in Information theory from Chalmers in 2003, and has worked at Ericsson AB with core, radio access, and microwave networks.

He was active in the European WINNER I/II/+ and ARTIST4G projects with important contributions to the 3GPP LTE standards, the EU METIS and mmMAGIC and 5GCar projects towards 5G and the EU Hexa-X & Hexa-X-II, RISE-6G, SEMANTIC, and newly started ROBUST-6G and ECO-eNET projects towards 6G, and in Chase/ChaseOn and newly started WiTECH antenna systems excellence centers at Chalmers targeting mm-wave and (sub)-THz solutions for access, backhaul/ fronthaul and V2X scenarios.

His main research interests are in design and analysis of mobile communication systems, physical layer algorithms, multiple access, resource allocation, cooperative/ context-aided/ secure communications, mm-wave/ sub-THz communications, C-V2X, JCAS, satellite networks, sustainable design, and end-to-end architecture.

He has co-authored 6 books, 110 journal papers, 147 conference papers and 79 public EU projects deliverables. He is founding member/editor of IEEE JSAC Series on Machine Learning in Communications and Networks, been Chairman of the awards winning IEEE Sweden Vehicular Technology/ Communications/ Information Theory Societies chapter, editor of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, Guest editor of top journals, organized tutorials and workshops at top IEEE conferences, Lead local organizer of EuCNC & 6G Summit 2023, and coordinator of the Communication Engineering Master’s Program at Chalmers.
