Rickard Nilsson earned the M.Sc., Lic. Eng., and Ph.D. degrees in CS&EE and Signal Processing from Luleå University of Technology (LTU), Sweden. With Telia Research AB, Sweden, and Stanford University, USA, he developed and researched a new broadband access technology for VDSL and contributed to its standardization (VDSL1 & VDSL2); a successful technology which enabled true broadband Internet access to many millions of homes and offices worldwide over existing telephone wires. For seven years he researched broadband access technologies at the Telecommunications Research Center Vienna, Austria, in close cooperation with telecom operators, system- and semiconductor manufacturers. In Vienna he also lectured broadband access at the Technical University and supervised Ph.D. students. In 2010 he returned to LTU and founded a new research group with wireless communications and software defined radio and established new research cooperation with mining, telecom and space industries. At LTU he continues to lecture Signal Processing and Communications courses and supervise Ph.D. students. His research interest is broad and spans from theory to practice in order to develop applicable signal processing algorithms and methods.
