Short BioGuillaume Villemaud received the M.S. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Limoges, France, in 1999. From 1999 to 2002 he worked at IRCOM, Limoges, France, on compact integrated antennas and received his PhD degree in electronics in 2002.
He developed multi-band hybrid arrays for mobile phone localization for CREAPE from 2002 to 2003 and then joined the CITI Laboratory, Lyon, France, in 2003. He is currently an Associate Professor at INSA Lyon, France, Head of the international exchange office of the Electrical Engineering Department and member of the Executive Committee.
His research interests are antenna design and integration, antenna diversity and multiple antenna processing (SIMO, MIMO), and system level simulation, coverage prediction, radio propagation and measurements. He is currently the site leader for the FP7 project iPlan for the development of planning and optimization tools for the deployment of Femtocells, also responsible of the Flexible radio terminals’ axis of the INRIA SOCRATE team. He is also strongly involved in the development of the Cognitive Radio platform, part of the Future Internet-of-things equipment of excellence funded by the French government. He has published more than 100 international technical papers.
In December 2013, he defended his Habilitation à Diriger des recherches (Qualification to supervise research), « Les communications multi-* : contribution au développement d’architectures radio flexibles pour les réseaux sans fil hétérogènes », INSA-Lyon and University Lyon 1.
