Mikko Valkama received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees (both with honors) in electrical engineering (EE) from Tampere University of Technology (TUT), Finland.
In 2002 he received the “Best Ph.D. Thesis” award from the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters for his dissertation entitled “Advanced I/Q signal processing for wideband receivers: Models and algorithms.”
Currently, he is a full professor in the Department of Communications Engineering at TUT.
His general research interests include communications signal processing, estimation and detection techniques, signal processing algorithms for software defined and cognitive radios, different sampling methods including compressive sampling, digital transmission techniques such as different variants of multicarrier modulation methods and OFDM, and radio resource management for ad-hoc and mobile networks.
