Joe Jamp received the BS degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) from University of California at Berkeley in 2001. He received the MS degree in 2003 and Ph.D. degree in 2007, both in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of California at San Diego.
The focus of his research is in interference mitigation techniques for ultra-wideband (UWB) systems. UWB is designed to operate over a large band of frequencies, from 3.1GHz-10.6GHz. Within this band, there are many existing narrowband systems, such as WiMAX at 3.5GHz and the 5GHz ISM band. By operating within these frequencies, UWB systems may cause interference to these narrowband systems. To minimize the interference caused by UWB systems, spectral shaping coding techniques that minimize the power, and consequently the interference, in certain frequency bands have been developed. These coding techniques spectrally shape two UWB modulation techniques: impulse radio and MB-OFDM.
