Kosai RAOOF is the head of Real Time Embedded Systems, ASTRE Department of the ENSIM college of Engineering, University of Maine, Le Mans France. He obtained his MSc and Ph.D from Grenoble University in 1990 and 1993 respectively; in 1998 he obtained the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches Degree (HDR). He was invited to join Laboratoire des Images et Signaux (LIS) in 1999, to participate in the founding of telecommunication research group. His research interest was first focalized on advanced MIMO systems and joint CDMA synchronization; he studied and introduced polarized diversity MIMO systems in the research group. In 2007 he joined GIPSA-LAB to continue his research on MIMO antenna selection systems. Since 2011, he is full professor at the University of Maine, and establish a new group of research on signal processing and instrumentation at LAUM laboratory. He supervised more than 20 Ph.D. and MSc students in different fields of applied signal processing and telecommunications. He is editor of two books and chief editor of ‘Wireless Sensor Networks’ Journal first published in 2008. His recent interest is localization for smart sensor networks and distributed agents for intelligent indoor spaces.
