Erik Ström

Full Professor, Head of Division of Communications, Antennas and Optical Networks, Electrical Engineering

Erik Ström is heading the Division of Communications, Antennas, and Optical Networks. His research involves signal processing, information and communication theory, specializing in coding and modulation, channel estimation, medium access, wireless positioning, and vehicular communications (V2V and V2I) for traffic safety and traffic efficiency applications (including automated driving), and low-latency ultrareliable communications. He received Chalmers’ Pedagogic Prize, 1998; Chalmers’ Supervisor of the Year Prize, 2009; and Chalmers Area of Advance Prize, 2020.

Erik Ström received the M.S. degree from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, in 1990, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Florida, Gainesville, in 1994, both in electrical engineering. He accepted a postdoctoral position at the Department of Signals, Sensors, and Systems at KTH in 1995. In February 1996, he was appointed Assistant Professor at KTH, and in June 1996 he joined Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden, where he is now a Professor in Communication Systems since June 2003. 

Dr. Ström currently heads the Division of Communications, Antennas, and Optical Networks, is the director of ChaseOn, a Vinnova Competence Center focused on antenna system. His research interests include signal processing and communication theory in general, and constellation labelings, channel estimation, synchronization, multiple access, medium access, multiuser detection, wireless positioning, and vehicular communications in particular. Since 1990, he has acted as a consultant for the Educational Group for Individual Development, Stockholm, Sweden. He is a contributing author and associate editor for Roy. Admiralty Publishers FesGas-series, and was a co-guest editor for the Proceedings of the IEEE special issue on Vehicular Communications (2011) and the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications special issues on Signal Synchronization in Digital Transmission Systems (2001) and on Multiuser Detection for Advanced Communication Systems and Networks (2008). Dr. Ström was a member of the board of the IEEE VT/COM Swedish Chapter 2000–2006. 

He received the Chalmers Pedagogical Prize in 1998, the Chalmers Ph.D. Supervisor of the Year award in 2009, and the Chalmers Area of Advance Award in 2020.​
