Charbel Abdel Nour obtained his computer and communications engineering degree in 2002 from the Lebanese University, his Masters degree in digital communications from the University of Valenciennes, France, in 2003, his PhD in digital communications from Telecom Bretagne, France in 2008 and his Habilitation thesis from the University of South Brittany in 2020.
From June 2007 till October 2011, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Electronics Department of Telecom Bretagne. He was involved in several research projects related to broadcasting and satellite communications. Additionally during the same period, he was active in the Digital Video Broadcasting DVB consortium where he had important contributions.
Since November 2011, Charbel holds an associate professor position at the Electronics Department of IMT Atlantique. His interests concern the radio mobile communications systems, broadcasting systems, coded modulations, error correcting codes, resource and power allocation for NOMA, waveform design, MIMO and iterative receivers. Lately, he presented several contributions to the H2020 METIS, FANTASTIC5G and EPIC projects and to the 3GPP consortium related to coding solutions for 5G.
