Dolby Australia Scientific Paper Winner Announced
Award winning research by Jie Zeng: “Improving signal processing in telecommunications with rate splitting”.
Our student takes the prize
We are proud to announce that the winner is a PhD student from School of Electrical and Data Engineering, Jie Zeng. Congratulations Jie!
To encourage and reward novel scientific advances in the areas of signal processing, machine learning, acoustics, or psychoacoustics by young and emerging Australian researchers, Dolby Australia had sponsored a paper competition for PhD students and Postdocs at UTS. The prize for the award is $1,500 and the winner will give a presentation to researchers at Dolby Australia on the winning topic.
Jie Zeng’s winning paper is titled “Improving signal processing in telecommunications with rate splitting”. The paper studied rate splitting (RS) to guarantee max-min fairness of single-input multiple-output non-orthogonal multiple access (SIMO-NOMA). Combining with minimum mean square error successive interference cancellation (MMSE-SIC) detection, RS has been proved to be able to achieve an upper bound for the minimum data rate of uplink users with the proposed heuristic algorithm.
Jie Zeng’s research is aimed to minimize the maximum transmission latency of uplink IoT users via the proposed MU-MIMO NOMA and rate splitting. It has been directed by Prof. Ren Ping Liu and Prof. Y. Jay Guo within the School of Electrical and Data Engineering (SEDE), and been carried out through the cooperation of researchers from renowned research institutions, including Tsinghua University, Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
