Antti Tölli (M'08, SM'14) is an Associate Professor with the Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC), University of Oulu. He received the Dr.Sc. (Tech.) degree in electrical engineering from the University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, in 2008. From 1998 to 2003, he worked at Nokia Networks as a Research Engineer and Project Manager both in Finland and Spain. In May 2014, he was granted a five year (2014-2019) Academy Research Fellow post by the Academy of Finland. During the academic year 2015-2016, he visited at EURECOM, Sophia Antipolis, France, while from August 2018 till June 2019 he was visiting at the University of California Santa Barbara, USA. He has authored numerous papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences and several patents all in the area of signal processing and wireless communications. His research interests include radio resource management and transceiver design for broadband wireless communications with a special emphasis on distributed interference management in heterogeneous wireless networks. He is currently serving as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing.
