Researcher biography

Dr. Konstanty Bialkowski's research interests lie in the area of communication systems, passive radar and signal processing, and specifically in the areas of wireless communication, and the use of multiple antennas or sensors for communication, radar and imaging systems. In these fields, a software-defined-radio (SDR) is an extremely useful tool, allowing practical experimentation in specific areas like high reliability or high data rate communications, radio-frequency identification, wireless sensing and biological applications.

Some key contributions have been in the development of architectures to collect information from various sensors including RF, vibration and acoustic signals; as well as sensor algorithms for passive radar, where using multiple receivers is capable of resolving target location in 3D space, rather than just the range and Doppler; and showing that SDRs can be used to develop low cost biomedical imaging devices.
