Dr Beata Joanna Wysocki graduated from Warsaw University of Technology receiving her
    MEng degree in Electrical Engineering in 1991, after completing her undergraduate study
    brutally interrupted by the horror of a martial law, which was declared in Poland on 13
    December, 1981. Shortly after the graduation, she migrated with her family to Australia. In
    1994, she started the PhD study in the Australian Telecommunications Research Institute
    at Curtin University of Technology. In March 2000, she was awarded her PhD for the
    thesis: " Signal Formats for Code Division Multiple Access Wireless Networks".
    During the PhD studies, she was involved in a research project "Wireless ATM Hub" at the
    Cooperative Research Centre for Broadband Telecommunications and Networking, and
    worked as a research assistant at Edith Cowan University, within the ARC funded projects:
    "CDMA with enhanced protection against frequency selective fading", and "Reliable high
    rate data transmission over microwave local area networks". From October 1999 till July
    2002 she was with the Telecommunications & Information Technology Research Institute at
    the University of Wollongong as an associate research fellow. From August 2002 until
    December 2007 she was with the School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications
    Engineering working as a research fellow on an ARC Discovery projects "Space-Time
    Codes from Orthogonal, Amicable and General Designs" and "Diversity Improvements in
    Ultra-Wide Band Communications". From February 2008 she has been with the
    Department of Computer and Electronics Engineering, University of Nebraska-Lincoln as
    an Assistant Research Professor.  Her research interests include sequence design for
    Direct Sequence (DS) Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) systems, smart antennas for  
    Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) systems, Space-Time Block Codes and Ultra-
    Wideband communication systems.
