Andreas Burg received his Dipl.-Ing. degree from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich and the Dr. sc. techn. degree from the Integrated Systems Laboratory of ETH Zurich, in 2006. He is currently a Professor at the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he is heading the Telecommunications Circuits Laboratory. His research focuses on both algorithms and implementation aspects of Telecom systems as well as on low-power high-density digital Integrated Circuits Design. In the area of circuits for communications, his group has developed both efficient algorithms for communications, ranging from MIMO detectors to algorithms for various types of channel coding. His recent contributions in this area focused on channel coding for 5G (Polar and LDPC codes) and on the exploration of coding strategies for 6G Wireless Systems.
