David J. Love (S’98 - M’05 - SM'09 - F'15) received the B.S. (with highest honors), M.S.E., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2000, 2002, and 2004, respectively. Since 2004, he has been with the Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University, where he is now the Nick Trbovich Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He served as a Senior Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications, Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, and guest editor for special issues of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications and the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking. He is a member of the Executive Committee for the National Spectrum Consortium. He holds 32 issued U.S. patent filings. His research interests are in the design and analysis of broadband wireless communication systems, beyond-5G wireless systems, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications, millimeter wave wireless, software defined radios and wireless networks, coding theory, and MIMO array processing.
He has significant industry experience working with Texas Instruments and working with leading wireless companies through research at Purdue. He has 32 issued US patents. He co-advised a team in the DARPA Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2) that finished in the top-ten in the first phase event, the top-five in the second phase event, and eleventh in the final phase. Previously, he co-advised the Purdue team that was a finalist in the DARPA Spectrum Challenge.
Dr. Love was named a Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher (2014 and 2015), is a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, and has been inducted into Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu. Along with his co-authors, he won best paper awards from the IEEE Communications Society (2016 Stephen O. Rice Prize and 2020 Fred W. Ellersick Prize), the IEEE Signal Processing Society (2015 IEEE Signal Processing Society Best Paper Award), and the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (2009 Jack Neubauer Memorial Award). He was the recipient of the Fall 2010 Purdue HKN Outstanding Teacher Award, Fall 2013 Purdue ECE Graduate Student Association Outstanding Faculty Award, Spring 2015 Purdue HKN Outstanding Professor Award, Fall 2017 Purdue HKN Outstanding Professor Award, and 2020 Purdue College of Engineering Faculty Excellence Award for Research. He was an invited participant to the 2011 NAE Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium and 2016 EU-US NAE Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. In 2003, he was awarded the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society Daniel Noble Fellowship.
