Hi, I’m Junfeng (Jayden) Guan

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Laboratory of Sensing and Networking Systems (SENS) at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), working with my PhD advisor Prof. Haitham Hassanieh.
I received my PhD from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), where I was a member of the Systems & Networking Research Group (SyNRG).

My research interests are in the area of wireless sensing and networking systems, including radar perception for autonomous vehicles, millimeter-wave networks, and Joint Communictions and Sensing Systems (JCAS), as well as machine learning for wireless and radar data.

I am on the academic and industry job market! Please get in touch with me if you have any potential opportunities.
