In April 2020, Professor Dr. Haris Gačanin joined the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of RWTH Aachen University as a head of the Chair for Distributed Signal Processing and as Co-director of the Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems.

After receiving MS.c. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Tohoku University in Japan, he joined the university as a Research Fellow of Japan Society for Promotion of Science and later as an Assistant Professor. Before joining our faculty, he was a Department Head at Nokia Bell Labs and adjunct teaching professor at KU Leuven in Belgium.

Now, we are proud to welcome him as a member of our faculty.

I feel privileged and honored to become a professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of RWTH. With new colleagues and brilliant students I will strive to establish our faculty as the leader in next-generation communication technologies and create a world where everyone, information, and goods can be accessed anywhere in an ultra-real experience without being constrained to space and time.
