Benjamin M. Zaidel received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Tel Aviv University, Israel, in 1990 and 1996, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, in 2006, all in electrical engineering.
During 1990-1997, he worked with a communications research group responsible for conducting feasibility studies of communication systems, and in particular cellular systems and other mobile communications networks. During 2001-2007 and 2008-2012, he has been with the Government Research Laboratories in the capacity of a senior research engineer. During the years 2007-2008, he held a Postdoctoral position in the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway. Since 2014 he is with the Faculty of Engineering at Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel.
His research interests include information-theoretic aspects of multiuser detection techniques, multiple-input multiple-output channels, cooperative processing in wireless networks, and the application of random matrix theory and statistical physics tools to problems in communications and information theory.
