Claude D'Amoursreceived his B.A.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in communications in 1990. He obtained his M.A.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering in 1992. His Master's thesis is entitled "Differential and Coherent RAKE Receivers for DS-CDMA in Frequency-Selective Rayleigh Fading Channels". He completed the requirements for the degree of Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 1995. His Ph.D. thesis is entitled "Hybrid DS/FH-CDMA Systems Employing FSK Based Modulation Schemes". All of these degrees were obtained at the . His Master's and Ph.D. supervisor was Dr. Abbas Yongacoglu. Universityof Ottawa
In 1992, while pursuing his Ph.D.,
Claude D'Amourswas employed as a systems engineer at Calian Communication Systems Ltd., in . He joined the Communications Research Centre (CRC) as a systems engineer in 1995 upon completion of his Ph.D. Still in 1995, Kanata, Ontario Claude D'Amoursaccepted the position of Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Royal Military College (RMC) of . He remained at RMC until July 1999 when he joined the Canada and Engineering (SITE) at the Schoolof Information Technology as an Assistant Professor. He was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in 2005 and to the rank of Professor in 2011. From March 2007 until December 2011 he served as Vice Dean of Undergraduate Studies for the Faculty of Engineering. From July 2006-December 2006, he spent a sabbatical leave at Université Laval and in 2012 he was a visiting researcher in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at McGill University. Since January 2013 he has been the Director of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He won the Faculty of Engineering’s John V Marsh Award for Teaching Excellence in 2006 and a University of Ottawa Excellence in Teaching Award in 2007. Universityof Ottawa
His research interests are in the field of communications with special interest in digital communications, coding, modulation, multiple access, information theory, and encryption. He has performed extensive research in code division multiple access (CDMA) systems. His current research work focuses on advanced spreading allocation techniques for DS-CDMA and MIMO-CDMA systems. He is the primary inventor of the parity bit selected spreading technique for CDMA systems as well as the permutation spreading technique for MIMO-CDMA systems. He is currently working on high rate uplinks for LTE-A communications systems based on SC-FDMA techniques.
