Biography

Fabian Steiner received the B.Sc. degree and M.Sc. degree (with high distinction) in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany, in 2011 and 2014, respectively. He holds also a B.Sc. degree in Management and Technology from TUM (2012).

He received the Prof. Dr. Ralf Kötter memorial award for his master's thesis and won the third prize of the 2015 Bell Labs Prize with his proposal on probabilistic shaping for capacity achieving and rate adaptive communication.

His current research interests include coding, modulation and multi-user massive MIMO systems.
