  • Source Coding


Abdellatif Zaidi received the Eng. Degree in Electrical Engineering from École Nationale Supérieure de Techniques Avancés, ENSTA ParisTech, France in 2002 and the M. Sc. degree and the Ph.D. degree both from École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, TELECOM ParisTech, Paris, France in 2002 and 2005, respectively.

From December 2002 to December 2005, he was with the Communications an Electronics Dept., TELECOM ParisTech, Paris, France and the Signals and Systems Lab., CNRS/Supélec, France pursuing his PhD degree. He is now at École Polytechnique de Louvain, Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium, working as a reaserch assistant. Dr. Zaidi was "Research Visitor" at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana, USA, during fall 2007 and Spring 2008. Since September 2010, he is assistant Professor at Université Paris-Est Marne La Vallée, France.

His research interests cover a broad ange of topics from signal processing for communication and multi-user information theory. Of particular interest are the problems of coding for side-informed channels, secure communication, coding and interference mitigation in multi-user channels, and relaying problems and cooperative communication with application to sensor networking and ad-hoc wireless networks.
